One Month Challenge, Day 6

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 6 of my One Month Challenge has passed (I'm on Guam, and we're ahead of most time zones). Here's how it turned out:

  • Item: Internet service; Cost: $64.40; Essential? Yes
  • Item: Credit card repayment; Cost: $100; Essential? Yes
  • Item: Groceries; Cost: $275; Essential? Yes
  • Item: Car payment; Cost: $446.11; Essential? Yes
Running total after 5 days is $1,036.78 ($929.74 essential - 90%).

I consider Internet service essential only because I need it for work. The credit card repayment is part of my debt snowball -- I'm trying to pay the card off by this summer. I also put $250 into savings, but I'm not counting that for these purposes as spending.
