High grocery spending, but cheap health insurance. Here’s January’s expenses + other data from the month!
The time has come: time to own up to my high-spending, globe-trotting year. My goal for 2017 was to spend less than $20,000, which I did not accomplish – let’s look at what I spent it on.

Every year I score myself on how I did on my new year’s resolutions. In 2017, I had 50 goals. Here’s how I did on them.
April – slacking on the gym front this month, indulging in caffeine abuse, and had my annual gym membership fee come due. Otherwise, a pretty boring (that’s good!) financial month.
March: The beginning of the travel expenses for the Big Tran-siberian Train Trip – including $20,000 first-class plane tickets for $300. Plus, a dentist visit.
It’s March 1st, and we’re officially 1/6th done with 2017. Which is terrifying, given all the things on my plate for this year. This month is a packed month.
For 2017, I’m focusing on goals that are business actions not outcomes. Because I need hustle & grace.
