All of our bills have been paid for February 2016. I did charge several things this month, but they have already been paid in full.
Grocery spending was up due to me renewing our membership at Sam's Club. Gas spending was down due to lower gas prices here.
This was a month which saw a lot of expenses for my daughter who will be graduating in May. Seems like every time I turned around there was another fee to pay.
I paid for her senior graduation package including announcements, graduation fee for the high school, yearbook, tassel from the NHS, and graduation cap and gown.
Senior year comes with extra expenses, but I believe everything is paid for now unless something unexpected comes up.
There were extra clothing expenses for my daughter in February due to her Spring Break coming up in March. She is preparing for a trip with her surrogate grandmother. All expenses for that trip have already been paid for as well.
Looking ahead to March, I already have my budget prepared. Our school system used seven snow days in February, so my paycheck in March will be much smaller as a result and I have planned my budget accordingly.
