March Expenses – $972.10

Here is a breakdown of my expenses for March.


My March expenses were quite low. I was easily able to keep my total expenses under my $1000 a month target. Working at home and sheltering in place made it easy to not spend money.

My only entertainment expense was my Regal Unlimited monthly membership fee. I was able to see several movies the first part of the month before they closed the theaters. My membership is suspended while the theaters are closed so I won’t have this expense this month. I probably won’t have any entertainment expense at all this month.

Transportation expense was for $77 of gas, $1 for a car wash and $223 for six months of liability insurance. The insurance bill wasn’t due until later this month, but I decided to go ahead and pay it since my expenses were so low.

My travel expense was $0 for the month since I can’t be sure when I’ll be able to travel again in the current situation. I’ll be canceling a couple of plane tickets this month so I might have travel income rather than travel expense this month.

My food expense was about $20 lower than the previous month and the lowest it has been in a long time. Not being able to go out to eat saved me a lot of money. I’m also well stocked with groceries so this month’s food expense should be even lower.

My phone bill was normal. It will usually be in the $28-$35 range and I expect it be in that range this month.

My health expense was $16 for a dentist visit. I was supposed to have another visit which was canceled due to the pandemic. I’m not sure when I’ll be back to the dentist. I do have a doctor’s appointment this month since I have to physically see the doctor before they will give me a refill on my blood pressure medicines.

Household expense was $9 for laundry and $6.28 for a pair of pants, safety pins, and a pill splitter.

This month I should easily keep my expenses under $1000. Assuming I don’t have any big, unexpected expenses like a medical problem or car repair. How was your month?
