Now that November is nothing but a distant memory, it’s time to spend the day gathering up all of our receipts, pool our remaining cash, balance the checkbook, and see where we netted out. Orrr, we can spend 10 minutes in Personal Capital to get a detailed breakdown on exactly where our money went last month. Let’s do that instead!
In November we spent $7,393.
That’s $161 more than we spent in October, but I’m quite pleased with our number. November had the potential to be very expensive with us ramping up our Christmas shopping and another trip back home to visit our families for Thanksgiving. Because the family lives so far away it’s not very easy to get there with four kids. This was our first Thanksgiving at home in five years. Long overdue and worth the time and money spent to get there.
