Because I have kept up with my excel budget I am still able to still post my annual summary.

Medical is only amounts not budgetted for or gap between my medical benefit and the outlay plus any other medical outlay not in budget.
Donations to medical / cancer and red cross appeals plus odd donations here and there.
Entertainment I have been buying some DVD's online and other outings over the year.
Eating out - My social life has picked up and venues are more expensive these days.

I will need to cut my expenses somewhat for 2016, as I am having some operations and the out pocket is in the 1000's I have save most of this money but will need to be replaced in the future to build my finances back to a healthy level again.

No Spending Days 167

All credit cards are up to dates and all bills paid.

Strategy - Track your daily spending down to the cent by writing it down daily.
