>July was crazy expensive.
I am NOT happy to report the following…
Coffee – $144.61 (increase of $92.61 from last month)
Eating Out – $100.65 (increase of $24.10 over last month)
Groceries – $524.57 ($174.57 over our budget (include camping food)and $268.57 more than last month)
Gas – $210.18 ($35.18 over but we went camping and did a little more than normal driving this month)
We planned to put a TON in savings and that just did not happen.
Savings – $465.85 ($55.85 more than last month but $634.15 less than planned)
I don’t know what it is about camping. It seems like such a low key inexpensive way to vacation with friends. Here is the breakdown…
Liquor Store $20.95 (the hubs needed to stockpile his rum before the trip)
Three Nights Camping $75
Coming up in August we need to buckle down and get back within our budget not to mention stick to a healthier eating routine.
- Pay off personal loan
- Pay off six credit cards
- Save $525
- Birthday Gifts for niece, nephew and my mom
- Concert tickets to Diana Krall at the winery (for my birthday)
