It’s now June 4th – and I am just getting a moment to post up my monthly expense report from APRIL! A little bit of life and work taking up my time, a dash of laziness, and mostly a heap of exhaustion. But for posterity – here it goes!
A three paycheck month, a big spending month, a look back at my spending for March: time for a fresh Monthly Expense Report! 🙂
I can’t say I did very well this month keeping expenses inline; so somehow I turned what should have been an amazing saving period with three paychecks into a consuming extravaganza! Let’s get a quick review of the numbers and then dive into a few details.
February was a bit of an odd month. The month is already shorter than most. I topped that with numerous appointments (planned and unplanned) that chopped down my time at work so much it felt like a vacation. So on one hand; great! a surprise vacation; on the other hand, so many projects piling up!
Hoorah! Welcome to our 13th monthly expense report! That means a new year of fun new expenses, and surprises around behind every door. It’s usually right around this time I review recurring expenses, like phone, internet and insurance. Have not done so yet, but definitely in the next few weeks.
At least one more vacation photo to share after this one. The above is from arguably my favorite day of the trip. Where are we? What did we do? How did we do it? (Hint: the odd “soil” should giveaway a nearby attraction.)
Continuing the vacation photos. It helps that I enjoy looking at them and remembering that great trip! It’s almost lining up perfectly that by the time this household is ready to be FI, that we will be planning our next major vacation. Almost as if, we could leave our jobs (and maybe our house) behind for more than a few weeks. Maybe a few months of nomad style!
