Money Three Month Challenge

29 01 2013

I recently looked at my finances (last post) and thought, holy crap I’m spending way too much.  So, for the next three months I’m challenging myself to cut my food, shopping, and entertainment budgets to half.  I will do this by cutting back a little each month to give myself time to adjust.


The stars indicate that for those months I will be using my shopping budget to purchase cooking utensils for Four Hour Chef.  Total spending across all three categories drops from 953$ to 450$, a savings of 503$ per month, or dropping to 53% spending.

This won’t be easy (250$ a month on food is less than 10$ a day), but I am going to go at it with gusto.  With travel for work it actually becomes much easier!
