Supposedly one of my best months. My friends paid for 2/3 of the burning man truck, so all told, I only spent about $515 on crap in July.
It was the month after my breakup. A depressing month. I took out cash for spending from my bank account – a strategy that seems to work much better for me than using a debit card.
Arguably, the protein powder is just another form of food. I guess I’ll be eating more of that in the new year, eh?
The Burning Man truck wasn’t avoidable, but I probably could’ve said no to the golf. Stoney River was a steak with my dad. I don’t regret that either. Overall, I could’ve done $150 less, so more like $360 instead of $515. If I did $360 in excess every single month, I’d only extend the payoff by 1 month. I don’t want to do that… I’m just pointing out that $360 isn’t insanity territory in terms of failure.
It also helped that for 2 of those weeks I was in Georgia w/ my family. There seems to be a clear pattern of staying with family = not spending money.
