September Budget update for a family of two in an expensive city-Did we meet our budget?

So September is over, and the question is did we meet our budget.? For this budget I got paid five times instead of the usually four times because of the pay cycle. As a result my takehome pay after taxes for the month was $2750. So the total family income excluding taxes was $4850. We ended up spending $4670 as a family. So we ended up with a surplus for the month. Yeah for September. Our savings at the end of August was $1152. With the surplus in September, our savings is now $1332. Here is the breakdown:
