Expenditure Review – 2013

December 30, 2013

Decided to take stock of the year in terms of my finances, after getting a bit of a shock looking at the bottom line. I spent quite a bit this year. Inflow did not match outflow.

Biggest sinkholes were: cash spending (meaning day-to-day food, taxi fare and petty cash), travel and rent.

I can’t believe I spent that much on travel. Only made 3 lousy trips this year to Cambodia, US and a couple of R&R days in Hong Kong / China / Malaysia.

2013 Expenditure by Category

2013 has not been a good year for my bank account. Hopefully 2014 will be better. I can’t believe my new year’s resolutions are going to be:

  • Move in with parents
  • Travel less

It’s like I’m regressing to when I just started working and had to struggle to make rent. Sigh.
