February Financial Summary

Actual debt is down to $10,742.90 as of March 1, 2012.  Financially, my month can be summed up in: built up my moving fund, bought plane tickets and brought in more than I spent.  Success!

Budget

I had another major fail on keeping track of my budget this month.  I purchased plane tickets and accommodations so I didn’t pay down a lot of debt, but I didn’t rack up much either.  We’ll call it a wash, shall me?  Here are the numbers for what I DID manage to track.

Need: -$114.80
I have kept saying I need to lower this category so.. I finally did it.  Needs have been dropped by $100 starting in March.

Save: $0
$100 to retirement and the other $235 to my moving fund.  I cancelled one of my payments to my Roth IRA this month since I feel like it should be going toward debt… but we’ll see.

Want: -$96.28
I skipped an entire 10 day period so I’m sure this was a lot worse than it looks… I also didn’t count plane tickets or anything like that.  So, not entirely accurate. Sigh.

Net worth: $13,557.13  (up 24.03% from January!)

I left the part-time job so now am working on my own income streams.  Hey, I made $1.02 in quarterly distribution from my SBUX shares, so there may be a future yet! Haha
