I'm going to keep this short.
I went $800 over budget for the month.
I could blame it on the handful of Christmas gifts I bought.
I could blame it on some holiday decorations and such I bought for my apartment.But in real life, I went that far over budget because I just went nuts. I spent $600 on clothes, saw a bunch of movies and just, just didn't do what I knew I should.
This does not put me in danger of not meeting my six-months-living-expenses goal, but I basically wiped out what I had left over from previous months when I was in the black.
Like I said, I'll keep this short. I just tossed all I learned about managing my finances to the wind this month and won't make a bunch of excuses. I just bought what I wanted when I wanted it and didn't pay much attention.
