End of a belt-tightening month and I feel great!

September is finally over - I can't wait to crunch the numbers and see how I made out. I made an effort to reduce dining out expenses this month since all summer there have been lots of things going on and my expenses (especially dining out) were out of sync. I was so excited that at the end of the month I splurged on 3 things I normally would skimp out on this past week:

1) took my girlfriend out to a spur of the moment dinner at a great local bistro (~$29)
2) went to lunch at Panera Bread with a coworker to network (~$9)
3) bought a 12 pack of Sam Adams Octoberfest Lager (~$13)

I have 2 weekend trips planned for October, November and December are always expensive months due to the holidays so I expect that September is my last best opportunity to make some ground on my net worth goals for the year.
