Shopping was high, but these were all planned purchases. I was waiting to receive my tax refund to pay for them. The dryer vent clean out is required by the condo association for all owners once every 2 years. My grocery spending included a little stocking up. I think as long as I stay below $100 a month for groceries these days with such high prices I will be happy with that level of spending. If I see something on sale that I routinely use I stock up, so some months may be higher then others depending on sales.


I'm very happy to send a big chunk to savings.

    Everything has skyrocketed, SMH.
    I wished my HOA included water, we pay $230 I think, I can’t remember we because I pay every six months or so. Also, way to go on spending nothing on gas. That’s great
