Budget overview for the week ending Jan. 10 2015

Worrisome week!

First complete week to record my budget and I'm all ready negative in two categories! For gas, I swear I didn't use this much, but it just so happened my gas tank was empty and I wanted to fill up the whole gas tank. For $50 bucks it's still not filled up but I managed to stop at this mark.

As for the Other category, I must say I'm a little guilty on in this. The story is I was browsing on redflagdeals and I saw a post for Costco T3 Hairdryer for $100. I got so excited, I'm like this is a must have!!! I have read reviews on this hair drying over the years, and it cost over $200 over Sephora. I thought this is a good deal, why not grab it?! So I did, and here goes another $113. 

This is the only the first full week of January, and there's another three weeks to go.

Not sure how I'm going to survive. If I did this kind of budget last year for any month, I know I would go insane. Just because! Extra spending every month on things that's not a necessity but based on spontaneous desire. This is the top one priority for me this year, cut all unnecessary spending. I know it's going to be a pain, I'm already feeling this pain. 

Good thing is I'm under budget on food? I bought some fruits (banana + apple) and eggs for this week and I'm going to eat out on Sunday. Will see how much it will cost tomorrow. 

Update Jan. 10 2015
I went out for brunch today with some friends, and spend $20. Also went to Costco to buy lemon and honey cost another $15. I'm going to make some lemon honey drink, more on this later.

Overall...expensive week. :(
