Monthly Spending – May 2020

Here are all of my expenses for the last month!  It was time for my annual insurance premiums, and that always makes it an expensive month.  I received another shelter credit for my auto insurance.  My bulk spending included three cans of beans, two loaves of bread (one for freezer), four boxes of cereal, eight cans of chicken, five cans of chili, two jars of peanut butter, two bags of popcorn kernels, four TV dinners, six cans of vegetables, thirty bottles of wine (not at once), and six containers of yogurt.  I decided to separate my lawn supplies (feed, pesticide, parts, etc.) from the home maintenance & repair category.  Those are all of my notes for the month.
