What do/did you find when you track your expenses? What are some of your budget busters?

Dumisai D. McMillan
When tracking my expenses I found that all my expenses were according to my budget, but my budget busters came from my eating habits on campus. Eating on campus is not fixed in my budget, but being on campus, far from the house, sometimes forces me to buy food on campus because of the convenience.

I found that rent takes up a sizeable amount of my expenses, though the information was likely skewed because rent is only paid once a month whereas we tracked for only one week. Additionally, if I didn't have a roommate then my life would be SO much more expensive!

Most of my expenses were in my budget. By far my largest expense is rent and bills such as utilities and internet. Like Dumisai, I found myself going over budget by purchasing food on campus rather than packing a lunch.

Tracking my spending I found that I are out a lot this past week and it was due to my not feeling well along with just being lazy. it was certainly my budget buster.

I discovered through long term tracking that I am using my credit card to live a little bit above my means! I will just pay off extra expenses the following month, essentially just keeping a line of credit open. My biggest budget buster is travel and food!

I've been using a budget for years and find that I'm living within bounds. But I'm taking my daughter's family on vacation and plan to dip into savings. Once in a lifetime trip for them.

I find out myself spend money on some online service, such as cloud storage, music stream, YouTube red etc.

I found that eating at school is definitely a budget buster. To cut back on my expenses, I have recently cut my tv service provider, and now use netflix.
