Here is a breakdown of my expenses for November.
My November expenses were not bad considering I paid for $367.40 of my cruise vacation expenses during the month. My expenses would have been under my stretch goal of $1000 if I didn’t have the cruise vacation expenses. I haven’t done the math, but I’m pretty sure I’m still on target to meet my goal of having my annual expenses be less than a minimum wage income.
The rest of the cost of the cruise will be paid this month. Since my travel rewards card will pay some of that expense for me the remaining cost of the cruise will not be too much.
Food cost was a little high in November, but it was low in October so those balanced out. The food total should be around $100 this month.
I’ve started a new job that is a thirty minute commute each way so my transportation cost will go up, everything else should be about the same. It is unlikely I can get my expenses down to the $1000 level this month, but they should be at least a little less than in November.
