Dining out was a little higher then usual, just enjoying life and socializing!

    Your expenses are so nice and low. May I ask, are you working full-time or part-time? What sort of things do you enjoy doing in your free time?

    Petunia: I am working full time. My free time is mostly on the weekends and I enjoy trying new restaurants with friends, having people over for potlucks and game nights, anything sports related (football and baseball mostly) outdoor festivals in good weather months, local theater (plays), walking, browsing antique stores, reading. I'm really a homebody and a bit of an introvert so too much socializing and crowds are not my thing! I like taking weekend trips every now and then too.

    Way to go on keeping the expenses down

    We like doing antique stores and thrift shops. Anymore, we spend more time browsing and commenting on stuff than buying, but it is a way to get out and about.

    Looks like you kept your expenses low and put a lot into savings. Bravo!
