My expenses were still higher than I like in June. The biggest expense was for transportation.  It will likely be my biggest expense for quite a while but I’d like to get it down.  I spent almost $500 on gas in June. I’d like to reduce that this month.  I thought I’d reduce it in June, but I ended up taking another long trip at the end of the month.  I thought I could keep my expenses at about $700 for June, but that turned out to not be realistic.  I’m hoping I can at least get my expenses under $1000 this month.  That will be difficult because I’ve got to spend quite a bit of money in order to make a little money working as an extra.  I’ll get my expenses under control eventually.

    • I am still in the van but I have been staying with relatives or in a motel the past couple of weeks due to the heat. I’ve still got a couple more days of work left on the movie. It will probably be next month before I get paid.

    • This month I stayed a week at my mom’s so I didn’t spend much on food that week. Plus I did a few fast food mystery shops. This is about how much I usually spend on food.

  1. Jason, I believe he’s living in his van.

    Andy, well done. I don’t think I’d have the perserverence to live as frugally as you are right now. Also, are you using a pre-paid cell phone? That’s pretty darn cheap!

    • I have a Virgin Mobile prepaid phone plan. It is $25 a month for 300 minutes talk, unlimited text and unlimited data. For new customers the rate is $35 a month but I’m grandfathered in at the $25 rate.

    • It is the category I need to work on the most. The amount does include $250 a month I’m paying on my van loan. Once I have it paid off there should be a big drop in this category.
