I first heard of Money Diaries from Lauren, and it's been interesting to see how everyone spends their money.
I'm going to switch things up on today's post. I won't be writing a complete money diary for each expense. Instead, I'll be breaking down my monthly expenses, how I lowered my monthly expenses, and how I plan on living on less than $1,000 in the near future.
Disclaimer: I don't have kids. I don't plan on having kids. I have zero debt. I have an emergency fund. I don't buy new clothes, I rarely shop, and I live minimally. Just because I spend money this way, doesn't mean you need to. In my personal opinion, finance isn't a one-size fit all. This is a judgment-free zone. Do you enjoy buying clothes each month? Do you enjoy living in a big house and having kids? Obviously, your numbers will be different from mine. Again, j-u-d-g-m-e-n-t free zone.
