March Spending Recap

Below is where my money went in March:

Mortgage = $880.79
Car Payment = $350.00
Long Term Saving and Investment (not including my 401K contributions) = $325.00
Gasoline = $232.44
Phones/Cable/Internet = $190.73
Utilities (heat, electric, sewer, water) = $177.98
Car Insurance = $165.00
Business = $99.00
Car Maintenance = $95.35
Medical = $80 (Had a prescription filled and forgot to post it – sorry!)
Hair Cut = $54
Car Registration = $49.87
Groceries = $48.35
Pet Expenses = $47.73
Entertainment = $20
Charity = $16.00
Stamps = $7.92
Misc. = $3.01
TOTAL SPENT = $2,843.17

Reflection: Not one of my better months, but mainly it is just because of the timing of how some expenses fell.  I had some business expenses, car registration, car insurance, and some car maintenance all fall at once.  Plus my hair cut and prescription refill hit at the same time.  So lots of expenses that are not monthly expenses all hit at once.  

April doesn’t look much better with some very expenses scheduled plus I found out I need $200 worth of work done on my car – but I really can’t complain as I really haven’t had to spend much on this car over the years.

  1. Great job. The cost of living is good in your area. Things are more expensive in my area. One way to save money on car repairs is buy from a Ford Dealership and you can get a Care service contract for cheap. Any repairs up to 100,000 miles are only $100 if you chose the right plan. It will cover any car you buy from them even used and it is a must for expensive car repairs.
