My June expenses were much higher than I’d prefer. I missed my goal of keeping my monthly expenses under the minimum wage level of $1274 a month for the first time this year.
My food bill was under my $100 goal. Even though it was pretty low it could have been a lot better. The total includes over 20 fast food meals. The only reason the bill was lower than normal was because I ate a lot of the food I had previously purchased.
My transportation expense were the budget buster. I spent a little over $500 in repairs. I went ahead and replaced my catalytic converter which was a little over $500. That was a lot less than the $1000 I was quoted at the first repair shop but still a lot more than I liked spending. I also had my six month auto insurance bill which was about $200. I’m looking forward to having transportation expenses of well under $100 in July.
I’m making a stretch goal of keeping my total expenses under $500 in July. That will be pretty hard to do but it isn’t impossible. My expenses should definitely be a lot less than they have been the last couple of months.
