June 2021 Update

Have you ever spent so much in a month, it causes Excel to relabel your chart axes? Because I have.
 The worst part is I didn't really spend on anything interesting - the vast majority boils down to 'all the houses had bills in the same month'.

Goals For 2021

The exact same as 2020. I think we all agree to write off 2020.

Goal #1: 50% Savings



Yet again, the actual goal is for this 12 month period to sit comfortably above 50%. Ideally, I'd like to bring the 3year rate up as well, but we'll see how that actually goes.

June Rate: 22%
2021 Average: 42%
Three-Year Average: 34

Goal #2 Reduce Average Spending by 10%


The goal is to reduce my average spend by 10% from January 2019 - bringing it down below $4,400 (a nice rounded number).

June Spend: $5,553.01
2021 Average Spend: $4,504.30
Goal Spend: $4,400 (or less)

Here's what I spent in June, which includes the save-to-spend amounts.
