So my goal of <$750 before I leave on my trip did not happen! It was a combination of things. We decided to reorganize the office since we have more room now, so I bought a bookshelf and some bins for that. I also spent a little more on our anniversary (2 years!) than originally planned, but he's worth it! And finally, I found good deals on flights to the marathon in San Francisco so we booked those along with flights to California for a wedding over Labor Day.
Overall, I'm still keeping it down, just now below $750!
I'll shoot for August then!
