I’m going to be putting up a monthly post on expenses and income numbers. It’ll be pretty basic but include everything. Cash expenses are hard to track but I don’t make too many of them either. August was a terrible month for me on expenses. I went to Packers training camp, bought a recliner that was necessary for the living room, spent money on my car brakes getting repaired, bought my girl an iPad for our 2 year anniversary, and upgraded my cell phone which was dying. On top of the usual expenses of rent, food, gas , student loan, cell phone and others. Not to mention I was laid off for 14 days rendering three severely hampered pay checks. All in all, I had a terrible month for expenses and will be making it up by budgeting hard and having full paychecks again.

Again, a very tough month for me. Extra expenses killed me this month. I have started a budget and will no longer be spending money on silly stuff. I could have prevented all of it other than my car, but I had a splurge month. Now with my indefinite layoff at work announced, it’s hardcore budgeting and responsible spending/saving!
