My total spending for 2016 was $23546 (USD). And this was a whopping $15 less than last year. I have no freakin' clue how I managed to do that.
This was spending for just my self, as I don't have a significant other nor kids in my life right now.
My total food spending for 2016 came out to $8049, broken down as follows.
Dining out: $4064 (I'd like to decrease this significantly for 2017).
Food/alcohol: $1167 ("Food" in this case is stuff I buy on the fly from convenience stores and similar places, like sandwiches and wraps, because I didn't have anything prepared at home or didn't have time to make something before heading out somewhere).
