2017 Book Purchases: June
2017!! New Year, new challenges!

This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I started in 2014, making this is the 4th 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.

 
20-Jun-2017: With 10 days left in the month…I’m already $10 over budget. Clearly I need to rededicate myself to not spending so much money on books.
