Good News Areas We Are Under Budget

We did pretty good on the gas costs and were under budget for maintenance.  

Biggest Expenses
I think I may have entered some October receipts here in September but once I enter it in the spreadsheet, I throw it away.  So I really have no way of telling.  As I look at October expenses, I am guessing that is what I did.

Large One Time Cost Item
Our largest cost item(s) probably had to do with the wedding but we would gladly do it again.
Campgrounds were high because we spent 10 days in Fairfax and had to pay top dollar there.
Groceries and eating out were high as well as Household items.

Monthly Average
We traveled from Florida to Fairfax VA so we had a couple of fill ups in the Roadrunner.

We were considerable over this month but my hope is that we can hold back on a lot of big dollar items within the next few months.  Our budget year goes from Jun-May so we have a few months to 'catch up'.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. Good work, keeping up with money spent. Some months scare me, but then a few under budget months come along and all is normal again by 1 Oct for us. We have used this method for years. Thanks for helping others get a handle on how to track money and then control it.
