I did well in terms of controlling my personal expenses in September but I had a couple of unexpected expenses. I took a trip to San Diego to visit my best friend and when I came back I found my refrigerator broken. On top of that I lost a full fridge of food. I went to Costco just before my trip and every time I go to Costco I always end up buying more than I need.
Not included in this table is an extra monthly payment of $300 to mortgage* principal and a $125 monthly expense for half of a rental property.
