Monthly Money Check: Penny Punched By Back To School Expenses — August 2017

Dear Rich,

Looks like this summer has been keeping both of us pretty busy, huh? Neither of us has written very much. You, because you’re busy vacationing and getting settled back in the states. Me, because life is just busy, man, and I’ve been avoiding technology. But, now that September is here, I’m back to using technology a bit more again, and have been busy catching up on Norm MacDonald video podcasts on YouTube.

Also, I’m pregnant. Surprise! We’re expecting child number five sometime in the spring.

Now, let’s talk about my monthly spending.

This month was a bit of a doozy for us. A bunch of school-related expenses to deal with: tuition, a city bus pass, school supplies, all that fun stuff.

Here’s what it looks like:

And, here this is coming off a month where we set a record low in spending for the year. Oh, well. Our donations are a bit down just because we forgot to donate. We’ll probably make up for that later. Our mortgage payment went down from $843 to $747 because our insurance changed on that a bit.

I guess that’s about it.

Later,

Penny
