I have been saving my receipts for the past month. I decide to go through them, and my bank account. It turned into me auditing our expenses for the past 3 months.
Let me just say, that I know we had been eating out too much. But in August, we spent .....and I can't believe I am telling you guys this.....$418. I feel so ashamed. That isn't even counting the $80 dh spent on lunch at work for the month. Granted, we did have company, for 2 weeks in August, but still.
July wasn't much better. I spent $658 on grocery and $243 on eating out. Dh spent $53 on lunch at work.
I broke down ALL of our other expenses as well. Clothes, gas, cash withdrawals, etc.
It has been an eye opener. I am now more motivated than ever to cut our spending.
Why haven't I done this sooner?!?
Just sharing because I am wanting to stop fooling myself about our spending habits. My spending habits.
Have you broken down your expenses?
