My August expenses were lower than last month’s by over $200. All the categories were below budget. Since August was a warm month, we mostly stayed home with baby butterfly with central AC on at all times.

My fix expenses went up this month since both my HOA and my insurance premiums went up this year. I was able to save on most categories because we barely went out in August because it was so hot. My Dining Out/Grocery category continue to be so low because it is being subsidized by my partner and sometimes family.
