My Frugal Miser - May Expenses: $4,464



A big part of my May spending went to car and home insurance.  Another $673 should be excluded from normal spending since it was an investment to sell collector's books I obtained at the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder's meeting.

I'm happy with my May spending since a large part of it was non-recurring.  I only pay my auto insurance twice a year and my home insurance bill comes just once annually.  A fair amount of our food budget was spent when we were out of town.  I also lost some money gambling in Vegas, but our total budget was super cheap for that vacation.

In June my expenses should be low.  We left on Wednesday to work on the townhouse and will arrive in Nashville on Friday for a hospitality job.  Our meals are covered there.  After the Nashville job we come home for a day and then leave for another meeting in Las Vegas.
