Total savings for February: $3523.68
A good chunk of my salary, Christmas money, and freelance income. Some of this money will go to taxes, but I'm still very pleased.
Total spending for February: $1639.14
Rule #1: No new books
Last purchase of a book: 2/4
Number of books left in to-be-read pile: 37. I found a big stack of junk books I'd forgotten about on a seldom-used bookshelf. At this rate I won't be buying any new books until 2009!I'll be posting updates on my progress on my "all-time low" challenge throughout March. I don't expect to make it in every category, but I'm challenging myself to see how little I can spend while still feeling like I have "enough."
