My Frugal Miser - April 2024 Expenses

April was a unique month:  my tax refund offset all my other spending, making April a net income month.  

  • I bought an Amazon gift card (divided between Household and Food expense) to take advantage of a 5% cashback offer.
  • I paid the $95 annual fee for the Chase British Airways card.
  • I received a massive tax refund.  Real estate losses (mostly depreciation) were higher than expected, offsetting other income.


We love adventures.  Spending on experiences makes us better humans.  
  • I continued my monthly subscription for U Relax.  It's a powdered alcohol-alternative beverage.
  • No travel/vacations were planned.
