Friday Breakdown is a weekly series where I go over how much money I spent for the week.
The first number is what has been spent in that category so far this month, the green number is the difference from last week, (the parenthesized is a snapshot of what the money was spent on.)
Automobile $614.85 +53.18(car insurance)
Internet/Cell $114.98 +54.43(cell phone)
Christmas Savings $100 +50 Clothing $59.45 +10.50 (sailor dry cleaning) Credit Card Debt $1100 +600(paid off 1 credit card) Education $96.28 +40.28(violin rentals) Entertainment and Rec $110.35 +60.35 (allowances, satellite radio, netflix and yearbooks) Food $378.44 +121.44 (groceries)
House/Home $40.85 No change
$1000 No change Utilities $391.67 +226.06 (electric and trash)
Duh, duh, duh, another one bites the dust. Ow! One more credit card out of the way. Only two remain, but they are biggies. We didn't purchase too much this week, there was no dining out and I have not used any of my allowance yet. All the bills are paid for the month and we are looking good at being under budget.
