Still on track for $8k in the emergency fund, but I’ve definitely spent a good amount on shopping in June:
- Manduka mat $98.53
- automatic cat feeder $140
- desk light $29.99
- comic $10.19
- The Thing $14.67
- Tomie $24.36
- Steam ($19.39+$57.48+$37.25)
- PS4 games ($12.49+$29.99+$22.23+$5.99)
- EA Games ($23.99+$4.99)
- Poetry book ($29)
Let’s look at categories…
Just eyeballing, about half the spending was bad. Video games, movies, and maybe half the books.
The cat feeder is awesome b/c it saves me so much time at home (the cat is using it, and it’s working well!). I haven’t been using the yoga mat like I should… I’m lazy. I also haven’t spent any time on the books. The desk light was a good gift that I’m proud of.
Overall, not a great month, but I got all the games on summer sales, spending about $5-$10 per game most of the time. This is the “celebration” month for paying off the condo, and I’m saving $3k out of the next paycheck, so I still feel okay. In future months I’ll definitely spend less on games. I’ll probably spend the same amount on cats (they need a new cat tree). The yoga mat was a one time cost. The other stuff wasn’t that expensive, so I don’t care.
