June Spending

June was a crazy month!! 
I dealt with the stalker issue. The police helped out so it should be done with! I crashed my car :( It was a 1999, and I rear-ended my roommate from university while we were in Toronto. I went to my roommate's bridal shower. I witnessed a guy stop to help a turtle across the road. D and I had a chipmunk come into the apartment!! I maxed out my TFSA and I bought a NEW CAR in cash!!! D and I saw Snow White and the Huntsman and went to the local pub a few times for dates with friends.

Rent (19%) ACTUAL: 9%
Hydro (3%) 2%
Internet (3%) 2% 
Laundry (2%) 1% 
Car and Gas (11%) ACTUAL: 4% if we don't include the new car, or 537% if we do...
Phone (3%) ACTUAL: 2%
Food (8%) ACTUAL: 4%
Restaurant (3%) ACTUAL: 5% Oops! D and I went on a few dates and starting at the new restaurant made me want to eat everything on the menu!
Personal/Medical (4%) ACTUAL 1%
Clothing (5%) ACTUAL: 0%
Gifts (5%) ACTUAL 1%
Education (2%) ACTUAL 0%
Entertainment (3%) ACTUAL 3%
Everything Else (5%) ACTUAL: 3% Second half of bridesmaid's dress

TOTAL (73%) ACTUAL 37% Another good month! Under budget (unless you count the car).

TFSA (15%) ACTUAL: 33%
Christmas (3%) ACTUAL: 0%
Camera (3%) ACTUAL: 0%
RRSP (5%) ACTUAL: 0%
Travel Fund (3%) ACTUAL: 0%

TOTAL (28%) ACTUAL 33% Maxed out the TFSA and that was all. I also took OUT $15000 from the TFSA this month. So really I should be in the negative but the plan was to use it as a planned spending fund so I am not going to put negative numbers in. 

July should be a great month. It's my birthday month, the weather looks like it will be amazing, and I only have one job this summer. Hope to get some savings in for next month though! 


  1. That's a pretty crazy month. July should be a lot calmer in comparison. Happy early Birthday!

  2. How are you going to celebrate your birthday? :)

  3. Thanks!! I celebrated my birthday by working....blah! But after work I hung out with friends and D. One of my friends bought me some wine and baked a cake. It was a nice night :)
