January Round-Up

>> Monday, January 19, 2009

Considering that this was the holidays, I don't think we did too badly. Of course, we went way over budget on entertainment, but that's Christmas for ya...

Monthly Spending (budgeted amount in parentheses)

  • Groceries: $426.43 ($500)
  • Transportation: $290.59 ($300)
  • Electricity: $93.38 ($150)
  • Water/Sewer: $20.00 ($50)
  • Entertainment/Miscellaneous: $593.29 ($300)
  • Clothes: $13.52 (no set budget)
  • TOTAL: $1437.21 ($1,300)

Trash Report: 5 bags of trash (13 gallon bags); 1 bag of metal and 2 bags of paper (reusable bags about the size of a paper grocery bag)

Changes I Made This Month:
  • I didn't do too much because the holidays have kept me busy, but I have started taking a closer look at my personal care products and will continue that next month.

Goals for Next Month:
  • more personal care products - specifically focusing on plastic use
  • I'm attending a meeting sponsored by the Sierra Club this weekend to learn about getting Raleigh to build more energy efficient. I also plan to attend some Sierra Club committee meetings this month.
