August Budget Recap

Standard

Wow! Have I missed a lot…I never posted a budget for August, nor a recap of my spending! But, I hope that you’ll trust my goals were what I’m putting here 🙂 
August was a great month! I finished up Autism camp, went on a trip to Cuba (where I relaxed, swam, read 3 1/2  books, and indulged in a few drinks and far too much food!), got engaged, and did a week of Autism Movement Camp at the university. All-in-all a great month, and my finances agree! 

So, here we are:

 I’m under budget for the second month in a row! You cannot understand how excited this makes me. 
My gas spending is super low because camp was in the same city we live in for the month of August, I was gone for a week, and The Banker filled my tank when I was gone 🙂 (Thanks!) I was also able to come in under budget in several other categories, and put an extra $100 into my TFSA. 
Look out for Septembers budget in the next couple of days 🙂 

How was your August? Anything exciting for the end of the summer?
