We just finished meeting our minimum spend for my Ritz Carlton with about a month and a week to spare. Here’s how we did it:
Here a graph of the breakdown of our spending over the two months:
Grocery charges made up for about 7% of the spending while restaurant expenses only accounted for about 4%. We also spent 6% on travel expenses. These expenses are pretty much built into our monthly budget already.
Insurance – 12%
Our auto insurance for our two cars is due on a bi-annual basis. I always like to get a new credit card to put this large expense on.
Donations – 15%
These consisted of tithing and some other charitable donations to organizations we support.
Reselling – 56%
Most of this was gift card reselling along with a couple of hot events that I bought tickets to in order to resell. Although I might actually go to one of the concerts. I’m looking at you John Legend. We’ll see.
