I just started a new job, in a new city and province, and my do big cities have so many temptations !
I love being so close to cute indie cafes, grocery stores and hipster bars, but I need to find a balance between getting out in this new city and keeping my budget in line.
Here is my goal budget for September 2013
|Sept predicted||Sept actual|
This will be my first full month working and getting a full pay at this job, so I’m trying to be cautious but realistic about extras like going out.
I split rent, internet and food with my partner. I take a little more than half of the rent since I’m working, but we split the internet and food in half.
I’m still unsure about my debt repayment. I’m thinking seriously about going back to school but am not sure what the scholarship/loan situation will be. In the coming months I hope to find a balance between putting serious money on my current student loan and saving so I don’t accrue another massive one!
