May spending

Misc Income: 490.27

Cell phone $81.26
Clothes $85.84
Entertainment $75.24 (mostly books, also Netflix* and contradancing)

Food—groceries $85.25
Gifts $6
Household $6
Laundry $16 (expensive this month!)
Medical $397.30 (the remainder of my dental bill, covered by flex spending)
Mystery shop expenses $231.22
Rent $1,100
School $2,829.11 (GRRRRR)

Utilities $48.65
Personal $7

Total spending: $5442.82

STAGGER.

Of course, taking out the school bill, I spent 2613.71, which is technically more than I brought in, but nearly $400 of that was “preimbursed” by flex spending, so I actually came out under! Woo hoo!

* I was quite sure that I cancelled this last month in time to avoid being charged, but I was wrong. It’s getting cancelled this month for sure.

Networth IQ is updated (see sidebar). That arrow is pointing straight down thanks to that school bill, but my retirement accounts were up by about $1000 again, so that’s nice. I’d love to see that continue!
