Yesterday wrapped up my August, because today is pay day.

It was a low-spend month. I spent only 83% of my variables, took nothing out of savings, and got a few breaks in the timing of my bills.

Housing: $713
Vacation/Travel: $188
Gas: $83
Utilities: $74
Phone: $52
Fees/Services: $40
Medical/Health: $37
Entertainment: $34
Gifts/Charity: $23
Groceries: $20
Eating Out: $13
Laundry: $9
Vet/Pet Supplies: $4

Grand Total: $1323

The reason for the very low food costs is that most of them were included in my vacation/travel budget. And I got a lot of free food on my travels. As well as free food from mystery shopping.

I didn't pay Comcast this month (but it will hit twice next month.)

I completed my second gap-year month. If I can do this every month I'll be just fine.
