My Frugal Miser - June Expenses: $3,840

I am not very thrilled by my spending in June, but I'm not surprised, either. I spent $352 for gas but I did travel twice to Tampa. I also spent $432 on food, which is the most I've spent in a very long time. A big part of that was from eating in restaurants while we were out of town. I also spent $528 on three flights to Vegas for later this year, taking advantage of their 40th birthday sale.

  • My food budget was really high but I did stock up on some sale items which should help reduce my food bill in July.
  • The biggest opportunity for savings is the mortgage interest expense, but it will take some time to do something about that. Stay tuned.
