How has it already been a month since I started this? I've been planning a trip down to Texas so my spending has gone up if anything, but since I accidentally double paid my rent bill last month I didn't have to worry about paying it this month. Since I will be moving back home in a few weeks, I decided it was time to make some big moves and I paid off my American Express card. this was the only one charging interest and I hated the idea of spending $20-$30 a month to have a balance on the card. It feels like a huge weight off my shoulders having that paid off. Now I just need to work on being more frugal with my spending! Here's the summary of the month.
