Waaaaaaaah! Budget? What budget? Man, this was a fun month. And that’s what this life is about, right? Yeah, that’s what I tell myself when I review this one. Before you scroll down and see that total, just keep in mind that we shoot for an average of $1000/month ($30/day total).
**In a previous post I explained what I consider and include in our own personal “budget”. For tracking and sharing purposes I am only counting true living expenses and general boat maintenance. (Althought I do note major purchases each month, if we have any) So if I don’t include the boat payment and major purchases, what DO I include? Food, diesel, gas, propane, eating and drinking out, dog stuff, clothes, cell phone/data, toys, land adventures, mooring balls and marinas,and general boat maintenance such as oil changes, watermaker filters, zinc anodes, etc. Pretty much every bit of boat related money we spend other than boat payment and insurance – now that the upgrades are finished. Why don’t I include those? Because they are so variable to you – the person I am tracking this information for. You may or may not have a boat payment, and you may or may not have boat/medical insurance. And if you have either, the costs vary wildly.**
April 2017 Budget
So how’s that for a budget? Keep in mind we shoot for an average. But still. So glad we have savings – and so glad we had such a fun month!
I admit, the first day we were back I ordered a new Mantus Anchor. The second day I ordered an ice maker. Safety and comfort – that’s what April was all about! Er, well. And playing with friends, staying on the world’s bounciest mooring ball, buying charts, replacing the Danfoss module on the fridge, and scoping out the Keys. And buying a #creepyvan. But that’s another blog post/budget altogether…
