The money I've spent so far this month...

Broken down by category:
Fun-63.92
Clothing-57.76
other-40.07
house/gifts-104.90
smoking-125.26
groceries- 212.75
gas-180.92
books-14.93
vet-113.00
restaurant/ice cream -39.64

total =953.35

So I had budgeted 450 to spend this month. I did not initially include smoking, clothing, or the house in my budget ( the total for that is 288.12)

What I've learned so far this month:

a) being honest with myself is the key to balancing the books ( no wonder any budget I've ever done has failed)
b) Becoming a non-smoker is becoming more and more of a reality every day...
c) I can say no to a whole lot of things...
d) budget for pets

Just catching up on your last few post and you have had quite the busy time. Your budget breakdown actually looks good. I hope you can quit smoking. Do you have a start date or are you just going to try it cold turkey?
Glad you had a nice day at the beach.

Oh my goodness next to food which we can not live without, smoking is your next biggest expenditure. This should be a wake up call. I hope you can manage to kick the habit soon.
