My Frugal Miser - December Expenses: $7,294

December was another fairly expensive month.  Fortunately, I'm mostly finished furnishing our new house.  That was a major expense for 2018.
  • I had new brakes installed on my car; I also spent a lot on gas with all the Amazon deliveries I made.  Good thing gas prices are super low.
  • Food spending was high.  We had family visit for Christmas so this category includes spending for several additional people.
  • I had to replace a broken crown - over $800 after insurance.  Dental care can be expensive!

*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.

  1. Promoted in current years in the battle versus aging, it's the most necessary particle you require to avoid illness and remain healthy. That's why lots of calling it the master detoxifier, the mom of all anti-oxidants, and the genius of the immune system. I am talking about glutathione canada.
