November 2012 Budget & Goals
Ahhh, November… a new month, a new budget! How dorky is it that the 1st of every month feels like the beginning of something new? Maybe I’m just in a good mood because of my ridiculous love for the holidays and everything starts happening in November… (haters, don’t hate!)
Alright, Christmas talk aside, let’s look at this month’s budget. I think what I’m most excited about with these numbers is that 49% of my budget is going towards both debt repayment (31.5%) and savings (17.5%). That gives me 51% to live/play with – sounds easy enough, right?
The only number I see myself going over on is the Birthday/Christmas budget. Why? Because, if you were reading last year, you know I always aim to finish my Christmas shopping by December 1st. I don’t think I’ll be buying many presents this year but there will be a few purchased this month. It’s also Baby Bro’s birthday in a couple weeks and I want to send him a little something from Toronto in the mail!
Other goals for this month:
- Track my spending and continue posting weekly spending reports
- Join GoodLife Fitness (I will do this, I swear!)
- Continue counting calories on Lose It!
- Workout at least 3x per week
- Participate in #NaNoWriMo (A post will need to be dedicated to this!)
What do you have planned for this month?
