As of this posting I am working hard on the entire 2021 Budget which will be posted soon. Here is the December data. We spent $6854 this month and the details are listed below.
Campsites – The $1600 a month we are spending at the KOA is absolutely insane, especially considering the RV park itself, but it is also just a few miles from our grandson so we bit the bullet for a couple of months. These prices are definitely not the norm.
Entertainment – We went way over in this category again spending $585 dollars. A chunk of that was activities we paid for involving the kids and grandkid including two escape rooms we did.
Gifts – These were some last minute Christmas gifts we bought. I wanted to mention for those of you who have received a calendar in the past we decided not to do them this year. The price was double what I have paid in previous years (it would have cost over $500 all in) and I just couldn’t justify the expense since we had already blown our Christmas budget on the kids and grandkids.
Home Repair – When we are sitting in one place for a long time Lee tends to work on home projects. December was no different. My stance on these expenses is we should do them now while I am making corporate money.
Truck Fuel – Despite high gas prices Lee did a great job keeping our costs down in this category. Since there are no truck stops where we can take advantage of lower prices in Charleston we got a BJ’s membership and MasterCard which saved us an extra 10 cents a gallon off their already low diesel price. I really appreciate how Lee manages this category as it could be a big number for us if we aren’t careful.
As I stated previously next up is the annual budget with 7 year trend numbers. That should tell an interesting story.
