Here is a breakdown of my expenses for November.
My expenses for November were at a reasonable level. I set a goal of keeping them under $1000 a month and I only went 41 cents over so I’m not going to feel bad about that. Food and transportation were both down significantly this month. This is because I ate out less often and didn’t drive as much. Food costs only include when I eat out by myself and the few groceries that I buy for the household.
My transportation expense should be even lower this month unless I buy a couple more tires which I do need to do before too long. The entertainment total included a couple nights hotel in Kansas City for a quick getaway my wife and I took after Thanksgiving. There shouldn’t be any getaways this month so that expense should go down.
My household expense might go up a little since I will be including Christmas gifts in that but I have earned a few gift cards from SwagBucks and elsewhere that should keep that cost down. We still didn’t have to turn on our heat in November so utilities should be about the same. Other costs should be about the same as well.
