Monthly Spending – February 2019

Here are all of my expenses for the last month!  As you know, I bought a new A/C, and that was my biggest expense.  My lotto expense is a net number since I won $4 on one ticket.  I usually only buy beef jerky during tax season because of my volunteer schedule.  I bought corn chips ($0.79) for taco soup.  My favorite grocery store has full-size bags of chips (different kinds) starting at $0.79.  I’m trying to reduce my chip consumption, and I’m really proud that I didn’t buy an $0.88 bag of cheese curls.  My bird food is the “right price” a couple of times per year.  I stocked up since they were $6 per 20-pound bag.  Those are all of my notes for this month.
