My July expenses were a little higher than I would prefer.  The higher expenses were due to my $605 of travel expenses which were mainly from my shortened  hiking trip. Since the travel expenses paid for two nights hotel, a two-day train trip, a one day rental car, a taxi, and several bus fares it is a reasonable number.  Since I didn’t get many miles hiked which was the purpose of the trip the expense was mostly a waste of money. On the bright side the July travel expense is also covering my round-trip airfare from Kansas City to Las Vegas. I’ll be staying three nights and have one free night and should be able to book two more nights at a very low rate. The Vegas vacation will be very cheap as long as I don’t lose too much gambling.

I have a doctor and a dentist appointment this month which will make my health expense higher. The other expenses I expect to stay about the same this month. I think I have a good shot at keeping my expenses under $1000 this month.
