Here is how I did in September:
Income: $1300 / $1249.64
Rent: $200 / $200
Cell Phone: $68 / $0
Car payment: $236.48 / $236.48
Car insurance: $215.33 / $215.33

Going out: $35.19 / $0
Emergency fund: $100 / $100
Investments: $50 / $50
Misc: $60 / $66.18
My income is a little lower this month because the day we went to see Cirque du Soleil I worked a shorter shift.
You will notice I didn't have a cell phone bill again this month. Once again I had some sort of unexplained "credit" on my bill. This is a whole other story on its own which I will post about.
The thing I am most proud of is the fact that I had 11 no spend days!! This is mostly because I made an effort to bring my lunch to work more often, which is also why that category is pretty low this month.
Going into October, I am going to keep making a big effort to bring a lunch every day, and hopefully put aside money for Christmas.
