Laundry and May Expenses

This morning was cloudy, damp and humid and (61F), not a particularly nice morning for a walk but at least it wasn’t raining. I noticed that the irises are starting to come out in the campground garden as you can see from the photo below.

I decided today I needed to get off the couch and the laundry had to be done so off I went to the Laundromat in Carleton Place. That took about 1 ½ hours. I stopped and picked up a few groceries then came home.

It was really humid today with a lot of mosquitoes around – not one of Ottawa’s nice summer days!

Late in the afternoon I went out to get some pictures so I’d have something to post on my blog, so here you are:

May Expenses

  • Campgrounds - $716.60
  • Groceries/Wine/Spirits - $517.77
  • Laundry - $37.50
  • Entertainment/Parking/Restaurants - $286.77
  • Truck Fuel -$215.90

  • Fixed Expenses - $406.17
  • Medical/Dental - $347.75
  • Gifts & Misc – $734.31
  • Total - $4519.82

Quite a month! You’d think we still had a house and were paying property and school taxes.

However, we did have to replace the truck tires and get a wheel alignment. That was just over $1200.00. We also bought a new UPS battery backup for the computer equipment as our other one calfed.

We also had our weekend in Toronto/Kitchener/Cobourg which was over $300.00 including hotel, food, car rental and the Butterfly Conservatory.

There was also the excess over and above our extended health care for renewing prescriptions, chiropractor, eye doctor and a couple of lab tests.

We renewed our Good Sam membership, Passport America membership, our RV Explorer membership and our ERS as well as Gordon’s domain for (over $360.00).

When you add up all the above items it comes to $2207.75+. If you subtract that from the total you get $2312.07 which isn’t bad for a month in Ontario!
