November 2015 – $667

No spend November.  Lol.  Let’s see how I did.

$667.  Less than 10% of October’s (unsustainable) expenses.  But still hundreds of dollars of crap I didn’t need.  When I see yet more of this stuff… I need to go on a spending cleanse.  Like a month where I don’t spend anything beyond the budget.  A month after which I can feel like I’m actually sticking to a budget.

The phone purchase cascade is interesting.

$500 new phone price

–> $583 after taxes

–> $628 after bullshit “connection fee”

–> $638 after phone case

Your new “$500” phone is really your new $638 phone.
