April Recap

April 30th, 2022 at 06:55 pm

Since I won't be spending anything today, I decided to do my April recap.  It was really a low-spend month -- $1624 total!

Housing - $460 (No mortgage payment due to refinance - it will kick in tomorrow. This is assessment fees.)

Vacation/Travel - $337 (Mostly train tickets)

Utilities - $218

Fees/Services - $110 (Tollway pass, Sam's Club membership fee, license plate renewal)

Groceries - $95

Gifts/Charity - $90 (Charity donation & Easter gifts for grandkids)

Medical/Health - $83 (Premium, co-pay for specialist, probiotics)

Gas - $58

Furnishings/Equipment/Decor - $51 (Bed pillows, spice organizer)

Phone - $31

Household Supplies  - $22 (Toilet paper)

Eating Out/Takeout - $19

Personal - $18

Entertainment - $17

Laundry - $14

Parking - $1

Variables - 106%

So it's weird. My overall spending was low but variables were a little high. I believe that's because my savings were in fixed spending -- most particularly not having to make a mortgage payment.

    Do you think your variables could have been a little higher because prices have gone up?

    I think variables was mostly affected by spending $332 on train tickets. Ordinarily, I would have taken an amount that high out of savings. But yes, of course, higher prices are affecting the spending as well.
