Thoughts:

So I definately spent a lot this month but I also had some extra money because I got a late birthday present (money) and I sold some stuff on kijiji. This basically gave me spending money for my trip which was nice because I didn't have to really worry about spending on my trip. Another great thing is that even though I was driving about 6 hours there and back I still was right on budget for gas. This car was definately a good purchase!!!

# of days I brought lunch to work: 13
# of no spending days: 8

It looks like even though you went over in some things, you were under in others!

Good luck this month!! :)
