Nov. unbudgeted for spending

$ 30 -to join a homeschool group
$ 6 -McDonald's
$268 -payment on MasterCard
$306 -payment on Kohl's charge

$610 total

This is insane. The money I spent on charges were all wants, not needs.

The worst is that I was $400 short on Nov. bills (money I put away for quarterly taxes) and these charge payments would have paid this. I could kick myself.

But Kohl's is paid in full and I am going to cancel it, as it just is too much of a temptation for me.

Now I have to work on:
$320 Home Depot Charge
$480 MasterCard Charge

After paying all Dec. bills that is.

Great job buckling down on those charge cards! :)

Thanks. I just can't belive that is was only Oct. when I had no debt except mortgage, and now I have $800 worth. It is so easy to buy, buy, buy.

Now my cards are hidden, they do not come out with me at all. Plus I am trying not to step foot in a store all month, other than to buy food.
