Spending habits

Posted by Thomas Wed, 27 Jul 2005 21:47:33 +0000

Since I am pen-ultimately bored out of my mind: for your viewing pleasure, a breakdown of the money that I have spent thus far. It is only an approximation (because real life is never as simple as the spreadsheet makes it out to be), but some ballpark figures none-the-less. Sorry that I couldn’t put it into a table for easier viewing, but I tried, it didn’t work, and I have no desire to screw with it until it does. There are no taxes in there, so this is simply percentages of money flowing out of checking/credit. If anyone so desires, I could whip that figure up as well, but it would take more time than I am currently willing to spend. So, enjoy!

Lodging 28.06%
Tithe 10.02%
Savings 10.02%
Non-Categorized Credit Card Transactions 9.30%
Gas 6.66%
Airlines 6.42%
Utilities 4.40%
ATM Withdrawals 4.34%
Restaurants 4.31%
Groceries 3.41%
Checks Written 3.19%
Auto Rental 2.60%
Retail/Department Stores 1.95%
Entertainment 1.48%
Household/Services 1.11%
Automotive 1.01%
Insurance 0.64%
Cell Phone 0.61%
Electronic Payments from Checking 0.38%
Non-Categorized Check Card Transactions 0.08%

    I want to see a pie chart. It would just be so much easier to visualize.

    Unfortunately I actually created one, but it didn’t really tell me anything any better than the raw data. Probably because, at its core, OpenOffice sucks. Anyhoo, I just got it to work, so here you go.
