August Spending

Misc Income: $2,739.92
Assorted survey nonsense, tuition reimbursement, flex spending reimbursement and returned security deposit.
Tuition Reimbursement $1,359 (this goes into the student loan repayment fund)
Returned security deposit  $1,102.75 (also went into the student loan repayment fund)
General savings $495 (this includes electrolysis, the future fund, the sunny beach vacation fund, etc)

Blow $8 (Starbucks)
Cell phone $93.57
Clothes $99.66
Dance Expenses $337.49 (paying off the last of the costume [instead of working it off] and re-upping my monthly studio card)
Dance Payment $165 (went towards the costume)
Entertainment $80.33 (movies, drinks, books—way over budget!)
Food—dining out $242.81
Food—groceries $166.70
Gifts $6
Household $10.50
Internet $16.98
Laundry $13.00
Mystery shop expenses $291.45 (most of which is the gym membership, which will be refunded)
Personal $61.47 (prescription refill, mousse)
Rent $687.50
Stupid tax $79.70 (a long-standing imbalance in my checking account that I finally got around to reconciling. I still have no idea what happened, but my records were that much higher than the actual balance, and had been for about three months. I poured over statements and couldn't find anything.)
Therapy $30
Utilities  $40.80

Total spending: $2430.96 –or really, 2351.26 when you take out the 79.70 that I just lost track of several months ago. This was an expensive month!

Networth IQ updated as well (see sidebar). A nice bump this month, thanks to the tuition reimbursement and returned security deposit. Also, my retirement funds went up by another $1,000--I'll take it! My goal was to have $30,000 in retirement by the time I hit 30, and if things keep going the way they are now, I'll make that even withOUT maxing out a Roth each year!
