My Frugal Miser - June 2022 Expenses

June was another brutal month.  But almost half of my spending was to make my Q2 estimated tax payment.  Unfortunately July is going to be bad as well:  I have to get a root canal and might pay my quarterly taxes early to earn extra credit card rewards.

  • I paid Q2 2022 estimated taxes:  $4276
  • On the way home from our Alaskan cruise our flight was canceled.  I had to change plans and fly directly to a meeting in Chicago.  Since I didn't have my work clothes with me, including a suit, I had significant expenses ($1,261) replacing my wardrobe.  I have filed a Trip Delay claim since my credit card provides that insurance, so it is possible I will be reimbursed for part of this.
  • I paid the annual fee on my United Quest credit card and also paid a transaction fee to use a credit card to pay my quarterly taxes.


We love adventures.  Spending on experiences makes us better humans.  
  • I splurged on two excursions during our Alaskan cruise.  In Juneau we toured a real gold mine - I love history.  In Ketchikan we did our first zipline.
  • We spent the night on the east coast of Florida after attending a concert with a friend.
  • I paid for a flight to Richmond to visit my mom.
