After spending over a month in Key West, we headed north to Tampa for the big RV show. We have always wanted to see that one. We met our friends Tom and Cathy there so that was a bonus. From Tampa, we did a build at Habitat for Humanity in Sebring Florida, then we finished off the month in Fort Myers with Tom, Cathy, Bonar and Christa.
Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
Once again, the biggest area for being under budget was in diesel fuel and gas where we came over $250 under budget.
Thankfully, we had no RV maintenance bills so we were almost $500 to the good there.
We had a big month of campground fees because of our time in Gulf Waters RV resort. That place cost us over $50 a night. But it was worth it. It is a very nice campground and we got to see good friends for eight days.
Cell phones/TV and Internet still run high but that is an expense we are willing to deal with. Our groceries were above average and not really sure why...
Large One Time Cost Item
My largest one time expense this month was an upgrade to my two-year plus old iPhone. I got an iPhone 5 and love it!
Over all, we were a little over $800 under budget and that was good. Our groceries since June 2012 (when we began year 4 of full-timing) have been running about $520.
Thanks for joining us on this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Until next time...
