I think I know enough money people out there, and my father, who will tell me I should account for my spending a little better, but for a while there I was doing really well. Until July.
I was just reviewing my July Visa statement, which I have no problem paying off and I like using my Visa for everything, so I can get the point, but I noticed a lot was spent on food. Sure in the back of my head I knew this as well, but there is a sad realization when I see if on paper – or TD’s mobile app – that I spent more than I normally do.
Normally I would chalk this up to me eating out more, which I have been. With it being summer, I’ve wanted to get out more, but it turns out that means get out of my house and go into a dark pub for a meal. Oddly though that only makes up roughly half of what I have spent on meals, I don’t no exact numbers, the other half is from going to the grocery store and stocking up on food.
Since coming back from Yellowknife in June I have wanted to get more into seeing – see my Food Category – but I needed to get the initials first. You know, like veggies, and meats, etc. Things that I had to buy lots of and would use overtime.
I’m not going to do this though for August, it will be a cheaper month with less eating out and more using what I have in the house. If you have recipe ideas, please send them my way!
