I did my July recap yesterday, and here is the breakdown:
Property Tax: $823
Vet/Pet Supplies: $153
Eating Out: $121
Household Supplies: $7
Car Repair/Maintenance: $7
Grand Total: $2814
So the grand total is less than I thought it would be. Overall, not a bad month, considering that I had to pay taxes and insurance, both semi-annual expenses, as well as two annual fees (AAA and I-Pass). Get a load of those groceries, huh? But the pet supply expense and the eating out expense more than makes up for that.
It's a new month! I paid my credit card bills in full, as well as my mortgage. After my gym session, I stopped in at Marshall's and bought some headphones (mainly to use at the gym) for $14. Then I went to a new (to me) grocery called Food4Less. Spent $32 for ten items: crackers, cookies, walnuts, mac & cheese, breakfast bars, raisins, popcorn, cooking spray, croutons, and frozen hamburger patties. I used a coupon that wasn't credited, so I'll have to wrestle with them today about that.
I'm going to stop at Aldi's today and buy another ten items.
Then I stopped and filled up the tank for $27, much needed; I was almost on empty.
My variables spending is already at 33%! That's mainly because I called the window company yesterday and charged the $200 fee.
It is so wonderful to have air conditioning again. I can hardly describe how good it feels, how renewing and refreshing it is. Ironically, the hot weather is breaking; we're supposed to get a cold front! But it isn't even August yet; there will be more hot weather.
Now I'm going to the gym to work out on the recumbent bike and try out my new headphones!
