Things of note: 

Ugh, this month the eating out was way out of control. I'm sure this is mostly due to my travels, as the meals I had that weren't covered by work tended to be a little pricey as I took my hosts out to eat and stuff like that.

Do note, however, that we cut our grocery bill by $100. I'm not sure whether to attribute that to the #couponchallenge or the exorbitant amount we spent eating out. I guess I'll call it a draw.

Our utility costs dropped a lot. I guess this is due to most of May being temperate enough to not require heating or air conditioning. I hate to see what the next bill will look like with the heat wave we've had here!

The two biggest increases over last month were reimbursable spending, and estimated taxes that were due this month - Peanut is basically done freelancing so we're likely to get most of these funds back next April but in case he does some more freelance work, we're going to be doing that three more times this year. Yay sinking funds!
