- Thanks to mystery shopping, I only spent $92 for fuel.
- I separate my mortgage interest by personal residence versus rental properties. I think this is an important distinction: the personal residence interest is an expense I should exercise control over moving forward when looking at ways to be frugal; the other is an expense that generates income.
- The $153 for the traffic ticket represents court costs and driving school. The ticket was dismissed.
- The household expense was higher than normal. I bought a couch at IKEA (no more sitting on the floor!), purchased some Free With WorkPlace Rewards products from Office Depot, and bought a few things I'd been putting off like belts for my vacuum cleaner.
