Other than investments, my largest cost was obviously groceries...

TOTAL MONTHLY SPENDING ON GROCERIES


$441.98: Groceries

That's actually not as bad as I expected, considering how often I go food shopping. I did really good on NOT spending a lot of money on clothing this month. However, I do owe money for various bills I've yet to pay. That will come out of my February salary.

You're good....as I mentioned
on one of my other replies, my
weakness is Whole Foods. Despite
(or maybe because of) being single,
I go crazy at Whole Foods, when I'm
visiting in a town that HAS one.
Not organics, so much, just
everything LOOKS so good and
fresh....

Harm: The problem is, living near san francisco, there are like 20 different grocery stores that are like (or better than) whole foods.
