January Money Out (Plan VS Actual)

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Bills

Some notes about my spending:

  • For Meds – the real amount is $94.01 for 3 months’ worth of meds, but I pulled $53.85 from my β€˜get ahead fund’ from last year). 
  • For Transpo – I opt for a One Zone pass only because I rarely travel outside my home and work (which belongs to the same zone). This costs $104.90, but I added a $10 buffer for when I need to travel outside the zone.
  • Private Desk = It is a desk rented in a co-working space that can only be used by me during the month.

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Expenses

Some notes about my spending:

  • I went over the budget for 2 sub-categories – grocery and personal fun.
  • In the middle of the month, I added a new sub-category – snacks. So that I don’t have to pull it out from β€˜grocery’ and I can distinguish the spending between the two.
  • Overall, I am under the budget in this category.
