So this is the first month that I have really tracked my spending. I actually didn't spend as much on food as I thought I did, but its still more than I need to. Even the amount I spent on clothes was not what I would normally spend. I think this is because I spent so much on my trip in May, so I was really trying to watch it. I didn't think I spent much going out this month so that isn't really a realistic amount of a typical month. My minimum payment for my student loan is $115 so as you can see I paid a lot more so that is really good. I've decided I'm not going to create a budget yet, I'm going to track my spending for July and then make a budget.

Hey! Not bad at all! You've done great :)

Now you can really see where you can start trimming the fat off your budget (or budgeting properly so you don't go over)
