July Recap

July 31st, 2023 at 05:41 pm

What a month this was. Not only did I have the vacation in Oregon, but I just got back from a long weekend at my brother's house. I went up to attend a memorial service for my sister's ex-husband. In addition to that, we did some eating out, and of course there was gas to buy. 

And then there was the semi-annual auto insurance payment.

Here is how it all broke down:

Insurance - $1180

Housing - $769

Vacation/Travel - $631

Utilities - $201

Fees/Services - $190 (Traffic ticket and legal fee)

Medical/Health - $81

Entertainment - $64

Gifts/Charity - $44

Groceries - $38

Phone - $38

Gas - $29

Personal - $27

Household Supplies - $22

Laundry - $16

Eating Out/Takeout - $9

Car Washes - $6

Grand Total - $3345

My variables this month ended up at 110% spent.

The bright spot was that with all the traveling I didn't buy much in the way of groceries.

    Glad to hear from you! I'm glad you had a chance to travel some and see family.

    Yes, your expenses were over budget, but I'm sure you'll have some months where expenses are under, so it should even out in the end.

    I'm glad to hear from you and that you have been enjoying time with your family! The price of insurance is crazy, right up there with dental work.

    I’m sorry to hear of your loss. I also hope you had a great time with your brother
