One of my favorite hobbies is to analyze why we have debt. This morning I opened my Citi account, picked the month of May and sorted purchases from high to low. Below are the top 5 purchases that month. So let's analyze a few:
Willie G's is a seafood restaurant in Galveston TX. Galveston is our little playground. We love going there on the weekends. Our family has a beach house so we never have to worry about hotels. I remember going out to eat at this restaurant but I don't remember why this bill is so high. I guess I picked up the tab for the family? The total was $199.19. That one hurts!
The next purchase is HEB which is the grocery store close to our house. This charge is probably for our weekly groceries. The total was $144, I don't even remember charging it. I love salmon and steaks, probably why that charge is a bit high.
The next item appears to be a charge in Las Vegas. This is probably from the wife's last trip to Vegas in May. She loves Sin City and apparently had a good time at this bar or restaurant. I hope she left a good tip.
The next item is all me. Academy is sporting goods store. I needed a new pair of shoes and some golf accessories. I spent just over a $100. I still have and love my running shoes!
The last item is PF Chang's in Houston. I'm sure everyone knows about PF Chang's. It looks like we had dinner and a few drinks? Can't remember now...
Well that's how you spend over $651 dollars in a few days. The total for the month of May was around $2,000. Most of it was paid back and we are hoping to learn from our past pending and cut back on life stuff.
