We started off the month with the government shutdown scare which could have affected my pay big time. After the government reopened, we paid off the tractor and then realized that we need a new well. We were very aware of our spending for the entire month. I'm only going to post our discretionary spending here.
Household--budgeted $200, spent $217.17, this includes some necessary items for baby but is the only category that is over. Not too bad considering we were still getting ready for baby.
Entertainment--budgeted $100, spent $15.09 just rented movies from Redbox
Gas--budgeted $500, spent $349.15
Clothes--budgeted $150, spent $25.46
Eating out--budgeted $150, spent $107.08
Y miscellaneous money--budgeted $150, spent $62.81, mostly on energy drinks
Beer--budgeted $180, spent $164.97
Groceries--budgeted $550, spent $438.17
Gifts--budgeted $100, spent $29.39, early Christmas shopping
Miscellaneous--budgeted $100, spent $28.63, postage and a Halloween costume for Lil Punk
My miscellaneous money--$50
I'm pretty happy with our spending this month. We need to continue spending like this for November because we need to pay for the new well this month.
How was your October?
