January was big on groceries because we were stocking up both my and my mom's pantry's, and gas spiked in February because we'll be driving a lot more to visit each other on weekends.
We had a big expense in February for Vehicle Maintenance - this was getting an out of province inspection on the Escape, and getting it insured in BC. We paid for the insurance as a lump sum.
Education is my HRIA membership which I maintain to keep my CHRP designation.
January was huge for Home Maintenance because we started putting a lot of focus on getting the house ready to sell. This included:
- Carpet Cleaning
- House Cleaning
- Home Staging Consultant
- Purchases of baskets, containers, bedding for when we show the home
So, we're up in some categories and down in others. After reimbursables - we're on track for our normal monthly expenditures.
