Roadrunner Financials - January 2017

Roadrunner Recap
In January,  we stayed parked at Sea Mist (military campground) at Dam Neck Annex in Virginia Beach.  We have been here since mid - December and plan on staying until about mid - May.

Good News Areas We Are Under Budget
We didn't drive the motor home this month, so there was no need to get any diesel fuel.
We underspent in:

  • Diesel fuel
  • Campgrounds, and 
  • Medical

Biggest Expenses
We overspent in the following areas:

  • Gas (car)
  • Car Maintenance (induction service, new plugs, wiper blades
  • Misc (gifts, clothes, boots and shoes)
Highest 1 Time Cost Item
The diagnostic service and maintenance on the car was $415.

Monthly Average

We had a very good month and almost came it at the budget.  We were only $22 which is a win in my book.  After all the months of maintenance and medical it's nice to bring down the monthly average again by over $150.  But we are still way behind for the fiscal year which began in June.

That's another look at where our money went during the second month of the new calendar year.

As always, if you think this spreadsheet might be useful I'd be glad to pass it along at no cost.  Just let me know.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!

  1. Doing well on spending less than you bring home. That sure reduces stress in life. I still keep a record on our spending, mostly to prevent bad spending habits. Your posts have helped me learn, thanks.
