First month-to-month savings comparison!

Now that October is officially over, I’m ecstatic to see the progress I’ve made with my monthly spending. From the month of September to the month of October, I saved

$417.94!

I cannot believe it. That’s more than a 30% savings!

And the best part is, I wasn’t technically on the budget system for the whole month of October. I put the envelopes into use on the 21st. That means that just half a month of budgeting got me these results. Could not be happier! I can’t wait to see how much I save when I’m actually using the system all month!
