Gotta admit, March was expensive.
Clothes – New wallet for T; his was literally in tatters.
Dining – About $50 over goal… there was a slightly pricey but excellent yum cha breakfast, food at the Pasifika festival (it’s official; not really my kinda cuisine), the Puhoi tea rooms (woot! Crossed off my life list), birthday dinner for a friend, discovering the awesome Pakistani curry house down the road, and other bits and bobs. Yum.
Entertainment – Went to the Hunger Games! I’m pretty happy with the adaptation. I rooted for Gale in the books (I always seem to go for the underdog; I was a Jacob fan myself) but when it came to the film, became a Peeta convert. (To be fair, Gale got hardly any screentime, but he was just a bit too pretty.)
Fines – the second of those two speeding tickets
Groceries – all good, moving right on…
Health – new running shoes for T. Ouch.
Holidays/events – Taking T’s brother out for his birthday.
Rent – Five weeks in March. Ouch.
T fun – Xbox stuff. A BB gun. Getting his RC car fixed. And other miscellany. Good thing only one of us is a spender.
Vehicle – T hasn’t been taking his bike very often, and there were two days I had to drive out way south for a conference, so I’m happy this wasn’t actually higher.
And an update on our savings goals:
Our road trip fund: $2300 (minus $450 on flights and campervan deposit, paid for)
How did your March go?
