I went over budget in November but that was expected due to work travel and vacation as well as buying gifts. I ended up doing a lot of shopping due to some really great deals on items that I have been eyeing for months like a black beanie, linen pants, and a black pleated skirt.

December 2021 Budget: $2,975

Rent: 40%

Groceries: 8%

Shopping: 7%

Dining Out: 17%

Health: 2%

Work: 2%

In December, I have a couple trips planned to see family so I purposely kept my December budget on the high end. The goal will be to try to shop and dine out less when I’m not traveling. I may have more work expenses due to a possible upcoming work trip, but I may pay for it in Jan.
