March Spending Wrap: Food & Lasers

Despite thinking I had succeed at a frugal March, it turns out I spent ~$6300 over the course of the month. This means April is going to be fiscally conservative, and I need to stick to a carefully planned budget (to be defined in my next post.)

In the meantime, here is a breakdown of what cost me so much this month…

Personal Care $4,348.10 (laser hair removal)
Food & Dining $646.10 (eeks!)
Home $632.50 (rent)
Shopping $292.16
Bills & Utilities $280.12
Health & Fitness $192.43
Auto & Transport $164.89
Uncategorized $50.00
Fees & Charges $14.25
Entertainment $9.81
TOTAL $6630.36

April is going to be a month of discipline. At least this month the majority of my spending was on the one-time fee for unlimited laser hair removal ($4300.) But the amount I spent on dining was ridiculous. And it’s not like I went out often or had extravagant dining experiences.

This is how my restaurant spending ($440) broke down…

Mar 29 Neiman Marcus Restaurants –$56.18 high tea with friends
Mar 29 Tokyo Go Go Restaurants –$84.74 shared sushi with aunt, cousin. water.
Mar 29 Little Chihuahua Restaurants –$12.50 breakfast with friend
Mar 28 Benissimo Italian Pizz Restaurants –$47.73 dinner with aunt, entree, shared bottle of wine
Mar 25 Max Restaurants –$24.64 dinner for bf, appetizer for me, water
Mar 22 Bangkok Bay Restaurants –$49.76 thai dinner for boyfriend and I
Mar 11 BJ’s Restaurant Restaurants –$64.58 bf’s birthday dinner & his drinks. I didn’t eat.
Mar 7 Cha-am Thai Restaurant Restaurants –$36.06 dinner in city with friend
Mar 1 Morocco Restaurant Restaurant Restaurants –$70.63 nice date dinner with boyfriend

At least my rent cost is still low compared to my income, so I can get away with months like this. Sure, I spent more than I made, but I make it up on other months (as long as you keep me away from the mall!!!) I’m worried about moving, and spending more money on rent this summer. Ok, time to figure out my April budget… coming up next…
