LaSt Monthly Spending Challange Post.

This will be my last post on the spending challange. Im proud of myself for keeping track for this long. Thanks Marva for the encouragement to keep going. I appreciate it.
Okay, this is going to be alittle confusing. I put several bills on CC that reward me for doing that. It also makes it much easy since I dont have to worry about late fees and I can pay one bill (the Creditcard) instead of 5 or 6 seperate ones. So I wont actually spend money out of pocket for these charges till next month so Im not going to count them. So here is run down for the Actual out of pocket spending for the month of Feb. So heres goes ... (totals are rounded)

House $1790.00 (includes equityline)

CC $400.00 (health insurance and a little more to help pay it down)

Discover card $586.00 (Only gasloine and food are on this card to keep track)
Phone $ 21.00

Alarm Co. $ 60.00

American Express $ 810.00 (Several bills on this one like Internet service, Directv, Cell phones, propane, horse feed, dog food etc)

Magazine $10.00 ( I LOVE THIS MAGAINZE!!! Simple & Delicious magazine sub. They send me a 1/2 off deal and I couldnt resist. YIppie!)

Tithe $ 45.00

vet supply 10.00 (rat and gecko food)
Elec $91
vet supply $2
Disneyland $40
Grand total $3865

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm nervous about a 5K and need all the encouragement that I can get. That is a great idea to track you spending, I need to do that.

Take Care

Ellie, I really have to commend you on keeping track of your expenses. You've done a great job. Man, it's expensive to live in CA. Our bills and salary are about 1/2 of that. I am really focusing on our budget. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Terrie

You sure have done a good job, Ellie. While I've cut back, I haven't kept an account like I should! :) Way to go!

Hi Ellie! You have done a wonderful job. It is so difficult to keep track though. I am glad that we did this. Let's just DON'T do it again, anytime soon, eh?! Have a great night and many blessings!
