Roadrunner Financials - February 2017

Roadrunner Recap
In February,  we continued our stay 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
  • TV
  • Mail, and
  • Household items
Biggest Expenses
We overspent in the following areas:
  • Propane (we were going through it with the cold weather but only have to refill it once during the winter)
  • Car Maintenance (maintenance on 8 yr old vehicle including hoses, plugs, radiator and hydraulic system flush)
  • Misc (gifts, clothes, boots and shoes)
Highest 1 Time Cost Item
The system flush and maintenance on the car was $1039.

Monthly Average
Here's a look at the monthly averages for the last six months.

We had another tough month and was a little higher than what we did with the budget in January.  After all the months of maintenance and medical it's nice to get the spending closer to our target.  But we are still way behind for the fiscal year which began in June 2016.

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!
