Here is a breakdown of my expenses for September.
|Bar App Fees||$933.68|
My expenses were reasonable last month. I made my goal of keeping my expenses under $1000 not counting bar application fees. Most of the reduction in expenses was in the transportation category because I cut back on long drives for mystery shopping and didn’t have to drive to St. Louis for a clinical trial like the month before. Transportation will be expensive again this month because I’ll likely be doing a study in St. Louis and have a trip to Omaha scheduled.
I was also happy that I kept my food expense below $100 for the month. That will be difficult to do this month with all the traveling but it is achievable.
Entertainment expenses were too high. Much of it was for a birthday dinner for my stepdaughter. That won’t happen again this month but we have a trip planned so this expense will probably still be high.
Other expenses, except for the bar application fees, should remain about the same.
