Credit Card Spending Check In

As part of our 'the plan', our credit card budget for the month of August is $500 for gas and groceries.  This is just a quick check in to see how we're doing:


It's August 29th and we're at $543.47...oops.  We made it so so so close!  The budget for August was a bit of a  guess, because we had spent half of August in my hometown and then in Vegas for our honeymoon.  We didn't get a chance to buy groceries as soon as we had intended (which is why we grabbed Wendy's...just the once).  I had also forgotten about our Netflex subscription when I was putting 'the plan' together - so we'll have to account for the next month.

This is the closest that we've come to sticking to a spending goal with the credit card and I'm hopeful we'll be able to stay true to 'the plan' for September-November and stick to a $700/month budget for gas and groceries.

  2. I believe you can do it. Most of the big stuff is out of the way now so you should be able to focus better.
