June 2018 Expenses

This month we had one large expense which was our new Australian Shepherd puppy Pipa. We had to go and pick her up in Barjacoba which meant a big (and expensive) road trip. Apart from that, we are doing ok when it comes to our overall living expenses, this month coming in just under €1000 (€936.46 to be exact). The full list of expenses can be found here.

We spent a bit more on shopping, this included some ‘necessary’ clothing for Patty and some essentials for Pipa. We also are starting to see the impact of growing some of our own vegetables with our supermarket bill now about €20 lower than normal (€313 vs €333 in June). Hopefully we can continue seeing that trend as more and more vegetables are starting to come in from the garden.

That’s all for this month – in conclusion we are doing fine as long as we don’t buy any more pups next month 🙂
