2016 Book Purchases: January
2016!! New Year, new challenges!

This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I started in 2014, making this is the 3rd year of purchase tracking. The biggest goal of this Purchase Challenge is to control my book spending: no more than $20 per month.

I always start the draft for these monthly book purchase updates at the beginning of the month. It gives me a chance to look back over the previous month and encourage myself to do better throughout the coming month.

In 2016 I am going to really focus on not spending a ton of money. I’ve spent most of the money on my giftcard so I will be deducting those totals from the monthly budget. My goal for 2016 is to a) stay within budget and b) try to get my spending down to $120 per year. I’m still giving myself the “special purchase” category.
