My Frugal Miser - October 2021 Expenses

  I spent a lot of money in October.

  • I was in a car accident and paid a portion of my $5,000 deductible for repairs.  This was an expensive mistake.
  • Spending on food was a bit lower since our meals are often covered when we travel for work.  


We love adventures.  Spending on experiences makes us better humans.  
  • I spent $2,500 purchasing IHG rewards points on a double points promotion.  That will likely last a few years.
  • The rest of the "fun" category is spread across several items, including wine purchased in Napa to take home, rideshare rides, museum tickets, and entertaining a friend from out of town.
