1. Track spending again. Done!
More or less. I’m still trying to find that pesky difference, but all expenses are accounted for. At least it’s close to the end of the year, so I can get back to obsessively making sure all of my numbers line up once 2010 rolls around.
2. Spend less than $100 on clothes. Kind of?
I returned 2 things this month, and with those deducted from the balance, I made it well under budget. It’s a lot like cheating, but I’m going to say it counts.
3. Save $3000. Done!
I finally got reimbursed for all of my relocation expenses, so I got a huge extra check. I’m playing around a little bit with some of my numbers, and will probably pretend the third check will be paid in November or (if I’m good enough that my budgeted November savings are what I actually save) possibly December. $6K saved this month, mostly due to $4500 reimbursement.
4. Get name changed with all my major financial institutions. Fail.
Um. No, I did not do this, which is bad because now my driver’s license says one name and all of my credit cards say another.
5. Go running 2x per week. Fail.
Oh, I failed this so hard. I completely forgot I even made this goal, that’s how much I failed.
6. Send out thank you cards. Fail.
Yeah, we didn’t even start them yet because we suck.
