April 9th, 2014 at 08:05 am

Here is my Financial Summery for January period.

I have updated my Excel finally so here are the figures for last month I have been quite busy here.

This for period of 28 days each as I work on 28 day cycles, my dates may be out to calendar months so here are the figures that will bring it up to date as its very near the end of next 28 day cycle.

Reviewing my monthly daily living allowance

These are the categories for this challenge.

Items === Approx. Budget===Spent

Eating out===$35=====$23.80
Groceries===$125=== =$101.91
Non-Food===$15======$4.65
Clothes ====$35======$36.00
Grooming===$20=====$22.00
Gas======$20=======$43.13

No Spending Days 13 of 28 days

Budgeted for this period $550 spent $332.89 under by $217.11 on general spending.
This month I spent money on 4 pairs of shorts that came out of clothes were an out of pocket expense of $36.00. Personal allowance covers health drinks, lotto, books, stamps, craft and hobby supplies.

Eating out including meals out with family and friends, we all go Dutch.

My credit cards are still paid in full each month; it was $230 this period.

Grocery allotment $125 for each period it was under by $23.09 this period.
Strategy - Track your daily spending down to the cent by writing it down daily.

    Great job tracking and those are very impressive low spending numbers! I don't know what the cost of gas is where you are- but I think I spend about $150 a month in gas.

    Gas is $1.37 to $1.68 litre (0.568 pint)
    I don't drive very much so I will always be on the low side. I only fill up when I get below half and never go below a quarter full.
