As much as I love it here it is expensive to live here. Thank heavens we have a free site or I can’t imagine what it would look like but gas prices are crazy high and local food isn’t much better. All that being said I am super happy with the month of July because we spent under $5K. See below for more details.
Clothing – We stock up on souvenir T-Shirts when we are in someplace fun and there are lots of great ones here. Lee even had a couple of T-Shirts made that have cute saying about not petting furry things in the park.
Entertainment – We spent $571 in this category but we both think this is inflated by some monthly charges. This include newspaper and TV subscriptions, IPad games, and music along with our standard paying to get into places.
Groceries – Over $1,000 again but we are trying to do what we can to keep these costs down. This also includes alcohol and I did buy some tequila for huckleberry margaritas 🙂
Eating Out – We spent over $650 on eating out. When we travel long days on the weekends we do like to find someplace local to eat and we have been going out with Lee’s work friends couple times a month as well.
Gifts – Birthday presents for my grandsons. I splurged a bit!
Truck Fuel – $475 is a minor miracle considering the distances we have been traveling and the over $6 a gallon gas price.
