As you know, I am trying to track and ultimately to lower my grocery and household expenditures. I posted about my January spending here. It was an expensive month. I spent $1543.50 over the 31 days for an average of $49.78.
February was better, but I’m not sure if it is because I was aware that I had spent so much in January, or if it was because I was out-of-town for 9 days, or maybe a combination of both.
My goal was to reduce my average daily spending to $45.00 for the month of February. Anyway, I spent a total of $971.49 over the 28 days for an average of $34.69 per day! That was an average of $10 less per day!
That is an awesome change from January, but I can’t be too optimistic just yet. March will be important for determining how I am really doing.
There are no trips planned, no other out of the ordinary plans, we have used up our extra supplies from my trip, so this should be just a regular month. I think I will have my goal for March be $45 per day as I had planned for February. If it is less again this month, I will lower it for April.
I’m really proud of myself for keeping track this long. I do feel like I am gaining control over my expenses!
How about you? How was February for you? Are you making progress towards your goals?
