Just double-checked my January budget to make sure everything is finished up for the month. Here's how the month shaped up:
I generated $62.50 in extra income by selling a textbook and rolling coins.
We spent $355 on groceries.
My one non-necessary expenditure was $100 on a pair of running shoes. NOT frugal, but after months of heel pain from my cheap shoes, I broke down and bought some good running shoes for my flat, ugly feet.
And the biggie:
In January, 45.1% of our income went for debt payoff.
