- Grocery Shopping--budget is $200, I spent $355.61
- Eating out--budget is $50, I spent $235.56
I am learning some lessons here, folks. I promise! I'm committed to getting this budget to a prettier place so that these recaps won't be so painful. Hopefully, December won't be as bad. Well. . .let's go ahead and push that out to January!
There were some very small (OMG, very small!) successes.
- For my lunch budget, I have an amount of $20.00. For the entire month of November, I only spent $20.34. Yes, I went over budget, but when you compare that to my miserable fail in October in the same category (going OVER budget by $41.28), I think I did a pretty good job in November.
- I have $60.00 a month budgeted for any pet related items needed for the dog and cat. I only spent $29.60 in November and I don't anticipate having to spend a whole lot in December in this category since the dog food and cat litter are pretty well stocked. If it weren't for my old grumpy cat having to eat wet catfood, I'd venture to say I'd spend $0 in the pet department for December. But, the cat is old and picky and he must have his wet food that I'm running out of. That's the only expenditure that I expect to have for pets in December.
What about you. . .any budget successes or failures this month?
