My Frugal Miser - September Expenses: $3,364

In September I did okay.  I kept my rental property expenses low, mostly because I spent so much earlier in the year.  My personal expenses are even lower than it looks because almost all the $561 I spent on gas was to do the mystery shopping route I am on.

September Personal Expenses ($1,880)

$561 Auto (all for fuel)
$0 Bank Fees (for August, listed under Business Expenses - Interest as I took out a loan to fund repairs)
$13 Clothing
$233 Entertainment (movies, gambling, alcohol)
$120 Food
$0 Gifts Given
$604 Household/Housing/Home Repair
$159 Health and Dental Insurance
$0 Investment Expenses
$0 Medical/Dental
$160 Miscellaneous
$0 Personal Care
$0 Subscriptions
$0 Taxes
$31 Utilities
$0 Vacation and Recreation

September Business Expenses ($1,484)

$909 Mortgage Interest (rental properties)
$317 Interest on Debt (not including Mortgage Interest)
$258 Rental Properties - Maintenance and Repairs

Total September Expenses : $3,364

  • I don't include principal payments in my expenses, only the interest portion of the monthly mortgage bills.
  • I don't drive around aimlessly.  Almost all of my auto expenses were incurred in the course of completing mystery shops. 
  • $160 Miscellaneous:  $90 reimbursable expense related to my grandfather's estate; $70 parking at the Kansas City airport
