2011 spending

December 31st, 2011 at 10:33 pm

I spent $2,699.15 more in 2011 than in 2010, almost 11% more. Most of that can be attributed to the carpet I bought for my whole house. The other big difference was in food. I started eating more whole food and lots more vitamins. I spent $2,314.65 more on food in 2011. I averaged almost $275/month. As some compensation restaraunt meals went down $324.78. The other big decrease was health costs which went down $2716.80. Due to the fact I didn't have to go to the hospital and have several organs removed Smile Also because of eating better I've been able to go off 4 of my 6 medicines.

Next year my HOA went up $53/month and my health care went up $44/month. So I'll be spending almost $100 more a month on basics. Plus the gas/heating bill is supposed to go up in January, but I don't know by how much yet.

I don't forsee any major expenses, except I plan to go to Maine on vacation in the fall. I'd also like to get a new laptop or computer sometime next year. I estimate around $1500 for the Maine trip and about $350 for the computer.

My property tax should go down, but my income tax will be a couple hundred more so that's a wash.

I finished reading my book Sweet Liar by Jude Devereaux. Romance - good.
