YES! It’s March! Thank goodness! This is the month where my mood and life always seems to pick up, so I’m thrilled it is finally here! So let’s talk about some numbers!
If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time now, you’ll recognize this handy-dandy budget spreadsheet that I love to use – PearBudget! This spreadsheet really makes it easy to see where I’m spending money. Also of note, some individual things like rent, insurance, etc. aren’t listed here – but are all conglomerated under “regular expenses” in the second picture.

Housecare (Utilities, Internet, Netflix/Hulu, etc): OVER $49.15 – Blast an extra-large electric bill this month. Harrumph.
Groceries: OVER $64.33
Dining Out: OVER $61.48
Car Gas: UNDER $20.00 – I swear I do drive places! Just thankful that the majority of my life happens within just a few miles of home!
Miscellaneous: OVER $8.63 – So close, yet so far.
Credit Card Payments: UNDER $30.00 – Ugh. Just the minimums paid this month.
Businesses: OVER $22.42
My income was excellent for this month, but I blame that on my tax refunds and a couple small performance gig payments that came through this month. Oh well, extra vacation savings and ending the month in the green! Even though I went over most of my budgets, I still had some left over! Let’s see if that carries over into March.
How was your February? Any major gains or losses?
