2018 Financial Year in Review – Annual Spend = $17,306.62

This year was an odd one. In general, I try to keep my monthly spending at an average of $1k. Up until September, I was right on track. Then I went to Africa. What was supposed to be a multi-month house sit turned into a multi-month road trip. I could have easily decided to just […]

February 2017 Remote Working Expenses – $977.18

Having fewer house sits and, especially, choosing to spend Christmas in an expensive area really killed my budget this month, but hey, you have to treat yourself sometimes, right?  My expenses for Christmas were  @ $525, so I’d have been much closer to my budget if I’d stayed in Turkey or gone somewhere cheap. This […]
