August Spending

August was a pretty busy month! It went by incredibly fast. I worked long weeks, doing two jobs sometimes full-time hours at both. D and I went camping with 3 other couples too. Here's how I did:

Car and Gas (15%) ACTUAL: 7% Had an oil change too
Phone (4%) ACTUAL: 2%
Food (4%) ACTUAL: 1%
Restaurant (4%) ACTUAL: 4% Could have done way better here. Ate out a lot this month.
Personal/Medical (6%) ACTUAL 3% Pills and some teen packs

Gifts (2%) ACTUAL 2% Bought my dad a t-shirt and my mom a zip-up hoodie
Education (2%) ACTUAL 0%
Entertainment (4%) ACTUAL 1% Beer
Everything Else (3%) ACTUAL: 17% EEEK!! This was due to the computer though which I had completely saved up for. Also includes a couple camping items.
