First, I got birthday cash and Boyfriend got a bonus that he decided to use on our vacation.
Then, I decided to donate $10 to charity in the memory of a lost friend.
After deciding not to budget $100 for my Tahoe trip, I paid an additional $20 on my credit card and put $50 in my Emergency Fund. (Sorry readers, I said I was going to put the full $100 but I failed. Sigh.)
So here's the numbers, how I did on my Budget laid out two weeks ago:
Boyfriend - 40/40
Emergency Fund - 25/75
Aunt Sallie - 406/406.96
Defaulted Student Loan - 260/260
Nice Collection Agency - 125/125.81
Credit Card - 15/35
Hobby - 70/35*
Groceries - 50/54.41
Tahoe Fund - 100/0
Misc. - 56/128
* - I decided to take a break from my hobby for a while and thus didn't pay the monthly dues. I also treated myself to a movie on MLK day since I had the day off. At the mall I made a small purchase ($15) I will explain in a later post. The rest of miscellaneous was likely spent on lunches out as I had far too many during this budgeting period.
In addition to the above (and because I have two separate accounts), my $100 birthday money was spent in the following way:
New Ski pants - 32
Bodega and booze - 59
So yes, lots of spending occured but I'm happy that I was able to knock off more credit card debt and boost my Emergency Fund a bit during the past two weeks.
