June 2014 : Month-End Recap

Goodbye June - Hello July!


  • Weekly spending budget of $150 (FAIL)
    • I totally failed this one... most of the weeks I have been going over - but there's always room to improve!
  • Track my spending – I can use my cash or debit card (CHECK
    • Yay - I cant believe I did this for a month. You can check out the weekly posts here.... I am looking to conquer you July!
  • Do not use credit cards (FAIL - ish)
    • I used CC#2 for a small purchase, but paid it off right away. I left my debit card in my other purse.
  • Have a monthly debt payment target amount – I want to target to put least $1k into my debt this month.(CHECK
    • I paid $1,353 this month - whooooo!!!
  • Have a monthly savings target amount – I want to hit $1k of my emergency fund … (CHECK
    • $1,000 is now currently sitting pretty on my savings account - which is not accumulating interest.
  • Have at least ONE day of no spending (CHECK
    • I don't think I was clear on this, but I wanted at least one day of no spending per week. I will definitely continue this next month

How was your debt progress for the month of June?


  1. Sounds like you did pretty well with your goals to me! Especially as you paid your credit card straight off after you made a purchase.

    My debt repayment went ok... it's still going down which is good!

    1. Thanks Hayley! Its actually nice seeing it going down. Its been a month since I started blogging and I feel like that helped as well for accountability - that I have to pay this amount or make sure I do not overspend

      Thanks for dropping by also =)
