Big UGGG for the month of November as we spent over $10K. The main reasons for this were I took a trip to see my Mom down in Florida and we decided to buy all of our Christmas presents in November because of concern of supply chain issues. The gifts alone were $2274 but if you take that (and the meals) out of the equation it was a pretty standard month See below for more details.
Campground Fees – We are spending a ridiculous amount of money on the KOA we are staying at but since it is only 4 miles from my daughter and there are hardly any places to stay here it is worth it.
Cigarettes – This category is actually for my Vape Juice and since the best prices I can find are here in Charleston I took advantage of pricing and discounts to buy most of a years supply all at one time. It will definitely save me money in the long run.
Travel Transportation – This $521 was for my flight and expenses associated with that travel.
Truck Fuel – Truck fuel is insane right now and even though we aren’t driving much we are still paying top dollar. Unfortunately there are no EFS truck stops near us so no big discounts. After doing some research Lee spent $55 on a BJ’s membership because their basic price is 30 cents cheaper than anywhere else. He also got a no annual fee credit card through them which gives us another 10 cents a gallon off.
Truck Maintenance – Lee took the truck in for an oil change and had some minor repairs done.
We don’t have too many months like this but they do happen. Thankfully bonus time is right around the corner and my company had a good year.
