July is always a bit more expensive for us because there are a lot of birthdays (mine, my mom's & Jordan's to name a few). We don't go into debt over it though, this is money that's saved up as planned spending throughout the year.
Gas was about on par, but groceries spiked. This was in part because we went camping and had to to a big stock of the trailer so it's ready during the rest of the summer and fall.
Alcohol went up a bit more than normal - this actually includes some beer for Jordan and some near-beer for me. It just wouldn't have been camping with out it.
I picked up a few more outfits because I was running out of clothes that fit again, new shoes because swollen feet, and got my nails done.
Vacation was the camping trip we went on for four days or so - it was absolutely lovely. This is a picture of our view, and the picture below is Aries (our biggest dog), sleeping after the trip - she was sooooooo wiped.
There's a big chunk of reimbursables for July too. I went to Ontario for a week for work so this was hotel, food etc. It's been paid back now.
Wow...and there's only two weeks left in August.
