Here is a breakdown of my expenses for September.
My expenses were down a bit from August. I made three extra payments on my van or my expenses would have been way down. If you take away the van payments, my expenses would have been only $561.90. My goal was to keep my expenses other than the van payments below $1000 so I’m very happy with September’s total expenses. I’m finally starting to see the savings from living in a van. It was one of those rare months where there were no unexpected expenses and no semi-annual/quarterly expenses. I’ll be hard pressed to keep my expenses as low this month.
Transportation was where I had the most savings. I went from spending over $500 in gas in August, to spending $169.73 on gas in September. It would be nice if I could keep my gas expense that low again this month.
I doubt I’ll be able to make 3 extra payments on my van again. I’m hoping I will be able to make at least one extra. All my other expenses will probably be about the same.
