Monthly Spending – September 2019

Here are all of my expenses for the last month!  Electricity rates increased quite a bit this year, and this was the first time in many years that my bill was over $100.  I have noticed that I’m using less electricity than in the past since I replaced my air conditioner.  I have even used my A/C more than in the past because of house guests!  Those are my only special notes for the month.
