I’m sure like everyone else, my town has been relatively shut down for the past months (since March 13th).
I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what I spend in a month when I really wasn’t going anywhere. I pulled up all of my credit card statements (I don’t use cash ever) and took a look. Keep in mind I’m a teacher and in grad school, so my priority is saving money right now.
I’m going to try and organize this by date and since I’m doing a month, I figured I’d do it April 18-May 18th.
4/26-Kendra Scott $82.55 (this is one of their sterling silver bracelets. On sale)
4/28 Hulu + Disney+ $12.99
4/29-Raising Cane’s $9.22 (lunch)
4/29 Loft $91.24 (clothes)
5/10- Timberlake Pharmacy $5.84 (milkshake)
5/12-Apple $3.99 (book)
5/12- UVA $2400.00 (Summer Semester)
5/15 Lilly Pulitzer $192.07 (this was the date it was posted)
5/15 Erin McDermott Jewelry 44.76
Grand total: $2797.90 (without UVA tuition payment- $442.66)
Obviously, I’m not really driving anywhere so I didn’t have to buy gas this past month. I normally buy gas every week when teaching. Also, I only pay for 3 semesters a year at UVA so I actually break it down and put $800 toward school every month, so I did not really take $2400 out of one monthly paycheck. My UVA semester doesn’t even start until June 8th, but payment was due by the 18th so I made sure it was in early.
I’ve been working recently on saving money, so I wanted to share with you what this looked like.
Do y’all find yourselves saving more since Quarantine/Social Distancing started?
