I’m already over the household budget for the month. Food is still under but it looks like I can’t get any more non-food items.

I thought I was doing well this month since my total is way under the December total. After taking a look at Mint it shows that my non-food spending is already over the limit.

Now I know the money went to things I needed like a new winter coat and a new pillow and some other items.

I just did not realize that I would surpass my budget only halfway into the month. Looks like it is time to pay attention to what I really have and what I spent the money on.

I can also focus on getting the things I really need like food items I can take to work. We start back classes on Tuesday next week but faculty need to be report for duty this Friday.
