December Spending

December was another busy month. We had three family Christmases, a few parties with friends, lots of baking and working! New Years with D was great and I am looking forward to 2012! Here is how I did for December...

Rent ACTUAL: 15%
Hydro 2%
Car and Gas (15%) ACTUAL: 8%
Phone (4%) ACTUAL: 3%
Food (4%) ACTUAL: 9%
Restaurant (4%) ACTUAL: 1%
Personal/Medical (6%) ACTUAL 7% Haircut and highlights
Clothing (5%) ACTUAL: 7%
Gifts (2%) ACTUAL 31% Yikes!!! This was for Christmas though. Spent $701, this was completely saved for during the year though.
Education (2%) ACTUAL 0%
Entertainment (4%) ACTUAL 3%
Everything Else (3%) ACTUAL: 11% I bought some books and games for myself. The big purchase was a new curling iron.

TOTAL (48%) ACTUAL 97% Woahhhh! That is mainly due to Christmas though.

TFSA (35%) ACTUAL: 0%
Christmas (5%) ACTUAL: 0% Took out money from this category
Computer (3%) ACTUAL: 0%
RRSP (6%) ACTUAL: 0%
Travel Fund (3%) ACTUAL: 0%

TOTAL (52%) ACTUAL 0% That was bad of me. I have a bunch sitting in my bank account that should have been transferred to savings. Will do that this month instead now!

We STILL haven't received an internet bill! Not sure what is going on there, we had it set up in EARLY November. Laundry is going to be another expense now. I am planning on redoing my tracking sheets to now include rent, hydro etc with a budget for them as well. I hope January is a good month, I don't have any major plans so hopefully expenses will be low and I can save as much as I can. 


  1. I hope January is good for you! I have a feeling it'll be good for me.

  2. I hope January turns out great for you as well. Mines has started well so far and I have no major plans either.
