November was a good month!
Getting really close to reaching that monthly budget of $1,000 – even with a little bit of extra spending !
Here’s where the money went:
I had budgeted to buy a new wool winter jacket, since I’ve had mine for 5 years and was looking to upgrade. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be and I have given up on jacket shopping. I may add that item as a freebie during my shopping ban.
Nothing too crazy this month. BF and I started to use more coupons/groupons when eating out in addition to eating out less.
Under Misc items, I bought a stainless steel skillet and pot since mine are from my university days and are rusty. I also bought the Toronto Entertainment Book so that BF and I can still do fun things on a tighter budget. Will review the Entertainment Book once I get a chance to use it!
Here is my net worth:
Overall, I am very pleased with this month’s outcome. I admit that I have fallen off the bandwagon of tracking my spending a few times this year, but the important thing was that I brushed myself and got right back on. I’ve also made some mistakes that I’d like to share (another post).
I’ve been a little obsessive with my net worth calculations. It’s just so encouraging seeing those numbers go up and up. My goal was to have a net worth of $60,000 by the end of the year, and I’m thinking that I may even surpass that goal. Time to put together that December budget. December budgets are always tricky.
