financial retrospective: june
June was a mild financial success. I've got that pretty purple 'savings' wedge on the pie chart, indicating that the Master Equation (spending < earning) has been adhered to. It's nothing dramatic, but it's a step along the way to financial freedom.
This month saw a few atypical expenditures, mostly pertaining to a replacement futon frame (the old one was literally falling apart, and the 'new' one is a Craigslist find, touched up with a stain marker), a housewarming gift for a good friend, and an oil change for my car. I did contribute to our shared checking account to help with bills and such, and even threw a little extra money at my credit card balance. All these things still didn't manage to throw me into the negative, so I call this a win.
Another month closer to December 2013, my projected month of achieving debt freedom!
