Zooey Deschanel says “Budget Your Life”

When “New Girl” actress Zooey Deschanel divorced her husband Ben Gibbard after two years of marriage in 2012, court documents revealed the star’s thrifty spending habits. Here’s a breakdown of her monthly budget:

  • Telephone, cell phone and email — $300
  • Dining out — $500
  • Laundry — $600
  • Utilities — $800
  • Groceries and household supplies — $1,000
  • Clothes — $2,000
  • Charity — $1,500

Not bad for one of Hollywood’s top TV actresses. Of course, she could cut some of her clothing budget, but we’ll let her slide. By the way, Deschanel has three credit cards — with no balance. Sounds like she knows how to budget.
