Start a savings account, NOW!!!
Work out a better budget, there's nothing in your current info about food/entertainment/fuel and so on.
Quick maths says you've got ~$1k spare a month until Feb. that's can't be right as other expenses aren't included.
Fuel: $40 for every week to week and a half (especially now that I drive more with the extra work) = $120-160 / month
Food: $30 for every week for groceries + ~ $30 / week for eating/going out = ~$60 / week or $240 / month
Toiletries / Non-Food Items: ~$30-60/month (I don't go clothes shopping much)
Cellphone: $10-20/month. I use a Google Voice/VOIP for longer calls like calls w/ potential renters (I'm looking for a new place), or for job leads. I use a VirginMobile pay as you go $10 phone for when I'm on the road or need to take a personal call (family, etc), and "Top Up" about twice a month.
I expect to spend around $150-200 on Christmas presents, btw.
So I probably spend about $400-500/month on things that I could par down / scale back on. Wow. Hate to see it laid out like that ...
