Tracking 2015 – The Halfway Mark

Leave a comment

 Well, another financial year is done and dusted.  More importantly, I have reached the halfway mark of tracking our variable spending.

BudgetingHere are the totals so far:

January – $5,144.53
February – $1,783.49
March – $4,350.56
April – $2,385.31
May – $5,961.54
June – $2,939.07

We are halfway through the year and our variable spending is $22,564.50 so far.

As I mentioned in the round-up for May, we began June with GMan buying a new pair of shoes.  Other than that we did not spend anything on clothes or shoes.  We bought Christmas gift for our other daughter so the majority of our Christmas spending is done.

The ‘House & Garden’ category continues to be a substantial portion of our expenses with $367 for repairs to the ride-on mower and $237 on a fancy new garden hose system which arrived yesterday.  There will be more detail about that in a future post.

It will be interesting to see how the second half of the year compares to the first.
