Comparing Quarters

I love the end of the month and the end of the quarter.

I now have over 6 months blogging so I have two quarters to compare.

So let’s compare my Quarter 4 from 2013 to Quarter 1 from 2014!

I’m pretty surprised to see some good and not so good things.

The Bad:

I’ve reduced my debt repayment, but I have done this consciously.

Transportation has slightly creeped up, but I’m not going to stress about a less than 1.5% increase. Not bad considering my focus on renting cars and doing more activities!

The Good:

My savings has gone way up by over 10%!

Housing has gone down slightly.

And the best part is that my life/extra spending has gone way down.

More good than bad so yay 2014 so far!
