April showers bring May water bills?

We had another big month of spending in the ‘Travel’ category because we booked flights to attend a wedding on the East Coast in August. Spending time with family and friends is important to us though, so it is money well spent!

Our restaurant spending went from $0 to nearly $43 this month due to dinner out before the MMM meetup and a birthday dinner for Mrs. Thriftyskate’s mom. Again, things we were happy to spend money on. Also, quite proud of a mere $25.06 in ‘Lunch at work’ spending. I (Mrs. Thriftyskate) used to eat lunch out twice per week without fail, and it’s amazing how little I miss it now that I’ve gotten into a new routine.
