January 2019 Expenses

ExpensesWhen we started researching the possiblity of traveling full time in an RV, I was concerned whether we could afford it. I apprecated reading other people's blogs that included any expense related items. It helped us plan accordingly and gave us a better idea of what to expect finanically while traveling. We learned that we had a good chance of surviving, provided we worked seasonal jobs.

To help educate others contemplating this lifestyle and concerned about finances, I kept and shared most of our expenses. At least I did for the first few years we were full-timing. To that extent, I'll try to start sharing some of our expenses again. These are most of the day-to day living expenses, which can be controlled. It doesn't include regularly scheduled expenses.
