Our Budget & Actual Costs

Here is a live graph showing our total actual cost to date in the blue and the overage in the red. Our budget was $22,020.

This graph breaks down our spend by category. The labels are slightly incorrect as the "Over" and "Under" are bars sitting on top of "Total Spend."

The large number within the blue is how much we've spent in total for that category. The numbers above is how much we are over or under ($0).

Here is the live spreadsheet for us to track our budget and costs. Feel free to snag a copy for yourself by going to File > Make a Copy into your Google Drive.

Sachiko's Saving Tracker

I'm hoping that public commitment equals motivation to reach my goal! Here's my savings tracker via Google Sheet below or click here.

The left graph shows the Total Saved in the blue bar compared to the Time Elapsed between January 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021 shown as a red square.

Scroll to the right and you'll see sparklines—or rather, I'd call them sparkbars (sounds yummy!)—to visualize my actual savings versus Minimum and Target. These goals may change in the future...
