My Frugal Miser - August Expenses: $5,978

August follows the recent tradition of gluttony.  I had some closing costs on our new house, pre-paid for some future travel, and purchased new tires for my car.  We had too many restaurant meals, too. 

August Expenses:  $5,978

$1,310 Auto ($1,014, $306 for gas)
$95 Bank Fees
$76 Clothing
$20 Computer
$225 Entertainment (movies, gambling, alcohol, concert tickets) 
$655 Food
$56 Gifts Given
$1,176 Household/Housing/Home Repair
$0 Homeowner's Insurance (annual payment)
$28 Health and Dental Insurance
$0 Investment Expense
$54 Interest Expense*
$0 Medical/Dental
$15 Miscellaneous
$0 Personal Care
$0 Subscriptions
$0 Taxes
$25 Sharing Economy Expenses (tolls, car washes, etc.)
$177 Unreimbursed Employee Expenses
$248 Utilities
$1,762 Vacation

*Interest expense includes student loans.  As the rate is below 2%, I am completely comfortable paying the interest each month and investing the money that I would otherwise use to pay off this loan.
