Wow, our October credit card bill was the most under controlled we’ve had this year. I think putting it on the internet really helped me to be conscious about credit card usage. Thanks readers!

* We give ourselves $100 allowance each every week to spend on grocery, shoes, shows, dinner out, and whatever else we want.
I think this month we finally achieved 100% compliance rating. No extraneous charges on the card. Excellent! It looks like transportation related expense is a bit high this month (around $200.) Next month isn’t going to be much better because of my road trip…. Overall, October’s bill was much better than September’s.
