The experiment continues. February spending was very different from January! A big purchase was made, as well as more discretionary spending now that No Spend Month is over.
Utilities: waiting for all bills to come in
Public transit: $18.46
Coffee shops: $16.80
Personal care (dentist: $15
7.4% of $20,000
Remainder to spend: $17,898.32
The unusual purchases this month were clothes. I bought two pair of second-hand shoes and two pair of second-hand jeans. I also bought a dress and crinoline for my cousin’s wedding.
My saving’s rate took a dive compared to last month, to 36.89%. This is something I will get used to. With leaving a full time job to start a business, my income will change.
How was your February? It had fewer days for spending – did that make a difference in your financial recap?
