This month, Zen Habits is taking up the One Month Challenge and I will be tracking all of my expenses and logging them throughout the month of February.
Day 17 of my One Month Challenge has passed. Here's how it turned out:
- Item: McDonalds; Cost: $19.45; Essential? No
- Item: gas; Cost: $40.00; Essential? Yes
- Item: drinks; Cost: $3.00; Essential? Yes
- Item: ice cream, snacks; Cost: $7.00; Essential? No
- Item: rent; Cost: $500.00; Essential? Yes
We treated the kids to McDonald's before their soccer games and then to ice cream after. I think most of our non-essential spending seems to be on treating the kids.
