I know I transferred money into my account from my loan, but I can't remember how much! Also I made a bit more money on eBay but can't remember exactly how much either. I would say I just broke even this month, even though it says differently above. No savings, bummer. But I guess we are focusing all our energy on the new house so it's kind of expected until we get back to normality.
Hmmm, what can I say? I think I did well on books/magazines. I bought one book at the start of the month, and no magazines at all.
Mobile Phone is high because of a $15 charge to replace the sim when I lost it. Not my new phone though! Thank god! I took an older, crappier one to the festival.
I am really proud of groceries and petrol expenses! LESS than my budgetted amounts! (I budgetted $50-$70 for groceries p/w and $25-$30 p/w for petrol).
Takeaway Beverages/Dining Out and Clothes: BLAH! Obviously I am going to be working REALLY hard on that this month. Entertainment costs were high, but I went to a festival. So really they won't be high in the months to come because we won't be DOING ANYTHING. At all.
Over all it was 'just a month', nothing special about it really, in terms of finance.
