Here is a breakdown of my expenses for September. This is a little late since I’m in Thailand now and my wifi is pretty weak.
My September expenses were once again pretty low. I am happy with this level of expenses.
Entertainment expense was for a New York Times digital subscription, one month of Hulu at 99 cents, a month of Paramount Plus, roughly 2 months of Netflix Thailand and 1 month of HBO Max. That is a lot of entertainment for the money spent.
The mortgage payment was my regular mortgage payment.
Transportation was for gas and for two new tires. I didn’t spend much on gas since I work at home and don’t drive much. I got a pretty good deal on the tires. If you own a car, you are eventually going to have to spend money on tires, so I am okay with this expense.
My food expense was very reasonable. This is about as low as I can get it now with so many foods being more expensive. Now that I’m in Thailand and eating out for every meal and usually buying food for my wife as well, this expense will go up.
My phone bill was $20.77. It was quite low due to a special deal. It will be back to normal this month.
The household expense was for toothpaste, cheap silverware and bowls, batteries and a haircut.
Health expense was for one month’s health insurance premium, a zinc supplement and a 90-day supply of one of my blood pressure medicines.
Travel expense includes $54.77 for taxes on my award flight back to the U.S. from Bangkok, $55.47 for a hotel near my flight departing the U.S., and $92.06 for my Thai tourist visa, a couple airport taxis, and travel insurance.
There also was an expense of $101 to help my wife with some of her expenses in Thailand
This month’s total expenses should be about the same. I’ll be in Thailand the entire month. Some expense categories will go up and some will go down. Overall, they should roughly even out.
How was your month?
