June 2017 Budget Roundup = $489,472.95 or an increase of +$3207.47 or 0.66%
Looking back at my spending this month, I have to say I did all right all things considered. I slipped very badly, falling into a sale of 50% off on this amazing dress and cashmere sweater (I am never going back to that store to be tempted again), and then got a few items at Grana (use my referral for 10% 0ff) not to mention all the other stuff I bought for lunch!
What sort of makes it all hard is I took most of the month off to go to Europe on vacation, so while I pre-spent (to the tune of $2000 being exchanged for food) in categories I have no idea about as I tracked NOTHING off that $2000 it mostly went to food, entertainment, bus tickets and things for Baby Bun (mostly). I did zero shopping for myself in that $2000 budget.

TOP 5 EXPENSES
Not bad, really, if you look at the whole big picture…
NET WORTH = $489,472.95 or an increase of +$3207.47 or 0.66%
The markets weren’t so hot this month, I can see from Baby Bun’s investment and net worth trajectory that it wasn’t so great.
At least my income made up for it to try and recoup back all the money I have been spending on everything.
NET WORTH FROM PAST 12 MONTHS
BABY BUN’S NET WORTH = $18,398.47 or an increase of +$158.84 or +$0.86%
Not too shabby, Baby Bun! But the markets were not kind to him this month as he lost more than we put in ($200)..
Next month, pure money. $_$ CHA-CHING!
I’ll be back from vacation, and ready to work like a demon…
I’ll really clamp down on the spending, particularly as I need to first re-evaluate my wardrobe of its clothes (why am I unable to fit into ANYTHING comfortably now!?) and see what I am actually missing, if anything at all (spoiler alert: Nothing. I can probably wear new outfits every day for 3 months without much repetition).
