My Frugal Miser - July Expenses: $9,925


I spent more than I brought in last month.  We paid for the IKEA cabinets (over $2,500) and I paid off my dental implant.  I also put a $500 deposit down on a December cruise and bought Platinum 2 Year Passes to Sea World and Busch Gardens.  Those passes work out to $23/month each, which is a big gamble on my part that we will divert our future entertainment spending towards theme parks.  The passes cover all 10 parks across the country as well as free parking.  We've already visited Sea World in Orlando last week and will spend some time at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA this week.

I began driving for Uber last month.  I earned $1,302.  Since I bought a car just for Uber, I will be able to track depreciation and other vehicle expenses.  I don't plan to break out my spending on fuel though - too complicated.
