October 2012 Budget & Goals
How is it already October!? Seriously.
Well, another month means another budget and a new set of goals. This budget is obviously somewhat of a test, as I don’t know what my exact expenses will look like in Toronto. I think I’ll be able to stay close to most of this, based on my first two weeks here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I went over in a few areas.
First, you might notice that my personal care budget is much higher than usual; that’s because I need to go shopping for a new pair of boots, this month. My restaurant budget is also on the higher end, because I want to be able to try some restaurants in the city. Finally, I have a small budget for my quick trip home to Victoria in a few weeks (the flight is already covered).
One expense I haven’t budgeted for yet is a gym membership. I’m very slowly catching up to my new time zone, so I haven’t been able to force myself out of bed for any early morning #pfworkouts yet. Until I get back into that (maybe next weekend?), I don’t want to waste money on a membership I’m only using once or twice a week. (BTW, does anyone know if Goodlife offers month-to-month memberships?)
Goals for this month:
- Track my spending and start posting weekly spending reports again
- Look for a book club I can join
- Join a gym (probably Goodlife)
- Start counting calories on Lose It! again
- Workout at least 3x per week
What do you have planned for this month?
