My expenses for January were much higher than I would like.  This is mainly due to spending over $400 for bar preparation materials and over $200 for a doctor visit.  My food total only includes meals I eat out by myself, that is why it is low.  My expenses should be lower this month since I won’t have the bar prep or medical expenses.  Expenses will still be higher than normal because my wife and I are taking a short getaway to Dallas.  Also the cost of driving back and forth to St. Louis to participate in the study will increase my transportation expenses although I may just take that out of my income figure.   I’m thinking my expenses will probably get back to around my $1000 goal in March.
