Total for the month = $1,326.85
February is usually a low spend month for us even without trying.
Grocery = $310.61, we are over and I don’t really know why. I think it’s time to tighten our belts again with our grocery spending.
Entertainment = $125.89, under and I‘ve decided to put $10 into our challenge. Also put another $24 for 8 NSDs in Feb.
Other expenses worth nothing was for my license renewal, dog annual registration, and other personal and medical items.
*Put as much money we possibly can into Investments (at least $40K).
We did very well in Feb.
*Save $3K for Holiday money.
We did not spend any money on this in Feb. We might look at doing something for Easter.
*Save $5K for "The Challenge"
As mentioned above, I added $34 dollars in Feb. I actually did a day-trade in Feb but that was to only see if my trading account still works. I made $10 and I decided not to bother putting that into this account. Speaking of account, I found out that I can open a sub-account in one of my bank account/trading account. I have only ever used this account for my long-term trading, but it does have an account for my cash and apparently I can have a sub-account. I just need to transfer cash into it.

*Continue Learning Spanish.
Yes - I have also been watching some Spanish shows on Netflix (we installed Netflix again the other week)
* Wake-up early workout and or meditate 5 times a week.
It has been so hard to work out when the weather is so hot, around 36C (almost 100 Fahrenheit), 4 days in a row in that temperature last week. Sleeping has been hard.
*Blogging once per week.
I need to do better here.
Too bloody hot, I just had been trying to keep the plants that we have now alive. There hasn’t been rain for over 2 months now.
We took another couple of bags to charity.
*Learn to Draw
I’ve been learning to sketch a bit; I’m bad a it.
