Wow, we have been doing great with our credit card bill over these last few months. March was also a low credit card usage month. We haven’t had any financial emergencies and things were pretty stable. I know next month we’ll see a much higher bill though because I need to get a replacement dishwasher machine for the rental home.
Credit Card Spending
Target – $94. A baby swing for the little guy. This is one of our unexpected baby expenses.
Amazon – $25. Diapers
H&R Block online tax software – $26. I found a 30% off internet coupon since I filed at the last minute. I also won $55 H&R Block key code from Suba at Wealth Informatics so that helped with the bill. 😀
Best Buy – $60. CPU cooler to fix Zoey’s mischievous handiwork on my computer.
Pet – $10. Just kitty litter this month, but of course they cost me $60 at Best Buy up above.
Public transportation – $24.
Gas – $68. Our gasoline cost is pretty stable because we don’t drive much these days.
Lowe’s – $4. Air vent filters. I also got a set of drill and screw driver bits, but returned them because I found the square bit I needed in my old set.
Fred Meyer – $41. Cordless screw driver and a bathroom scale.
Appliance Part Pros. – $30. A microwave door switch so I can fix the microwave at the rental condo. It worked! 🙂
Total – $382!
Another month below $500! I am ecstatic! It’s almost as low as February’s bill. All in all a very good low expense March. I love it when the credit card bill is low like this.
We give ourselves $100 cash allowance each every week to spend on discretionary items: groceries, shoes, shows, dinners out, and whatever else we want.
We didn’t buy anything big with cash in March. There were a bunch of small purchases like groceries, Kirkland formula, baby bottles, and a few other small items. So far so good.
