I’ve never actually kept track of how much I typically spend in any given week. Sure, I keep track of all of my money, and I know what I do with it monthly, but sometimes I wonder how I spent so much or so little in a given month. For example, sometimes my monthly credit card bill is a lot higher or lower than previous months. I always go over my bill to make sure it’s correct, but sometimes find myself trying to figure out what I did differently that makes the bill higher or lower.
I decided to keep track of what I spent in one week’s time:
Monday: $16.84 – Groceries
Thursday: $12.00 – Haircut, $5.83 – Chinese Food
Friday: $14.82 – Dinner at Applebee’s,
$14.00- $0.00 – Movies (had free tickets!)
Saturday: $12.17 – Grocercies
Sunday: $9.26 – Groceries
Not bad for one week. At least I don’t think it is. Multiply that by 4 and you get 283.68 for 1 month. I think I can do that. I wonder why my credit card bill is always higher than that??
