Sorry I have not posted much lately! Sometimes I get in like a rut and don't really know what to blog about, or I feel like my life is not exciting enough to be blogging about! lol.

So all in all May was not bad. I did overspend a little, but not by a huge amount. And the good news is I haven't put any new charges on my credit card.

One of the most exciting changes you might notice is that my car insurance payment has gone down! I am really surprised because they sent me a renewal notice saying that rates in Ontario are going up. So I thought oh isn't that great. Another reason I'm surprised that it went down is because it hasn't been one year yet (still 1 payment to go). Anyways so it used to be $215 and now its $199. So that's about $16 a month or $192 dollars a year. Not really as low as I would like it but oh well it's a start. Everyone says it goes way down once you turn 25 so I can't wait for that one!
