Sept Goals

October 1st, 2005 at 04:43 am

walked with mom for 55 min

Stayed at mom's for Taco Salad and games. I won 4 games and mom won 2, which left Dad pouting. hehe. He almost always wins.

I got a $10 Walgreens gift card in the mail today.

My goals for Sept were:

1. Only spend $400 for groceries, gas, entertainment, clothes, household basics and misc.
Didn't make this one. Spent 427.93

2. Walk at least 20 times this month for at least 45 minutes each time.
Walked 22 times

3. Only go to fast-food restaurants four times and only eat at regular restaurants four times.
Went to fast food 5 times and restaurants five times so didn't make this one either

4. Save $880 above my 401K contribution
Saved the money, but i'm not investing it till I find out what it will cost to redo my shower.

5. Increase my emergency preparedness
5.1 Adding $100 to my cash. - Done
5.2 Increase my emergency stocks of water and easy to eat foods etc. - Done
5.3 Reallocating some of my emergency money to be more liquid. - Done
5.4 Reviewing my insurance policies - Done saved $40 on this one
5.5 Reading Urban Alert! for more ideas. - Done

So only made 3 of the 5 goals - not so good.

Total spending for the month was:

Groceries - 120.55
Fast Food - 37.80
Restaurant - 47.67
Nieces - 80.85
Clothes - 0
Books/Newspapers - 74.07
Gas - 49.55
HBAs - 2.84
Entertainment - 0 - the miniature show was entertainment, but tracked it under miniatures.
Other - 16.35

Miniatures - 72.50
xmas - 120.42

I also figured my net worth and it increased by 4.36% during the month of Sept. I'm very happy with that.
