My October expenses were a little higher than the last two months. All the categories were below budget except for the Household category. Since September was still warm in the west, we spent a lot of time at home with baby butterfly.

At the end of September/beginning of October we took a trip to the Monterey peninsula for a conference. Fortunately, most of the expenses were covered by my partner’s company as baby butterfly and I tag along for the conference. My grocery budget went up this month because we started to eat at home more often instead of dining out all the time. My partner pays for about 80% of the time when we dine out.
