We started out the month in Agave Gulch RV Campground (Davis-Monthan AFB) in Tucson. We finished up the month in our first and only ever stay at a huge RV Resort (snowbird destination) Mesa Regal RV Resort in Mesa AZ.
Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
Except for our trip to Baraboo, we had a pretty good month expense-wise.
The biggest expense was the biggest expense for the month was our trip to Wisconsin.
Large One Time Cost Item
Our trip to Baraboo, then we spent a little more than we like to on campgrounds.
With only a couple months left in my Jun-May 'fiscal' year, I am coming to the realization reducing my budget to $4000 a month from last year's $4100 was a bit optimistic.
Be that as it may, an overall monthly average of $4127 is certainly manageable.
We have been on the road almost 5 years and knew a big part of this adventure would be to track and manage our costs of living as full-time RVers. I started tracking our expenses and have labelled this our "Budget and Finances". Upon reflection, this is really more of an expense tracking log and not really a budget as much as it is an estimate vs a budget. I can not remember consciously saying, "we only have xx amount left in our budget for this..."
I show spending here and not income or charitable giving.
