Well May was a little cheaper, coming in at just over $1,500 in expenses. And our Adsense had a record month! So overall, it was a decent month.
We spent $311 on fuel, and only $140 of that went in the motorhome. The rest went in the little car, and Ruth put some gas in her Dad's truck to go pick up Alex from school in the U.S. June will likely be a little higher because we leave for Cape Breton on Friday, and the gas tank is pretty much empty right now.
We used less propane in May. One, because it was warmer than April (but not much!) and two, we are plugged into electric where we are currently parked and we use a little electric heater. But we will owe our host some money for using her electricity that we will pay during the month of June. We spent $38 on propane in May.
Groceries, at $360, were better than expected. But the freezer is getting some space in it, and Ruth was away for almost two weeks. June will likely be higher.
Spent $255 on booze, but again, we did another $112 batch of wine in that amount. June will be lower.
Miscellaneous was better, at $284. Our average is about $452. This includes anything from vet bills to internet costs to laundry.
Entertainment was low again, at $27. This was for a couple of meals out.
And, we spent $249 on Sherman. Most of this is the new shocks that I bought.
So $1,500 for the month is not bad, but we can live for less than $1,200 a month in Mexico so we're thinking of heading back there early this year. Maybe even in September!
On the revenue side of things, we made $269.74 with Adsense, by far our best month ever! But, I had lots of free time on my hands and did a lot of research into what works and how to increase your Adsense revenue. Maybe it will pay off with consistent long term growth in website advertising income. It's starting to make a huge difference in being able to continue doing what we're doing.
