I must admit that I am embarrassed by my spending habits in the month of September. I have really been going out/eating out a lot and justifying it to myself as enjoying the single life. Well, this girl's single life is starting to get expensive. I went over-budget in almost every category. Here are the cold, hard facts:
Food - $334.00 on eating out; $127 in groceries for a total food expense of $461.00. That means that I am $161.oo over my alloted $300.00 food budget.
Gas - This category I actually did okay. I spent $224.00 out of $240.00.
Shopping - $179.00/$100.00
Entertainment - This category really got me. I spent $239.00/$100.00. No excuses, I was enjoying myself.
Hopefully, by admitting to my September mistakes in writing, I will do better in October. However, I feel that this is also going to be a costly month. So far, I have almost every weekend planned -
Oct 3-5: Going to Tuscaloosa for the Alabama/Kentucky game and visiting my best friend from law school.
Oct 10-12: Bachelorette Party/Lingerie Shower
Oct17-19: Old Roommate's wedding
Oct 24-26: No plans as of yet
Oct 31-2: New Orleans for a concert
With the weekends being full, I am going to have to take it easy during the week!
