Here is a breakdown of my expenses for April.
My expenses in April were way too high. Our car needed both a new starter and a new timing belt which caused the extremely high transportation expense. There were also considerable gas costs from my wife driving from Missouri to Pennsylvania and back to pick me up from the trail. If I had known the timing belt in the car was going to break I wouldn’t have gone on the hike but luckily we have enough money in savings to cover these expenses. I also spent $170 on a new phone which I included in the household expenses. For the month of May I am going to avoid any big expenses I can and hope my expenses will be closer to the $1000 level than the $2000 level.
