Things of note:
New category: baby! We doing what J$ is doing and tracking all the expenses relating to this baby (and any future ones, as separate entities) down to special vitamins or clothing that I need to buy while pregnant all the way through college costs. We promise not to hold it over baby's head!
The house category is a little higher than usual because we had to have a plumber come out and snake out our kitchen drain line - something we probably should have done when we first moved in (it's always drained slowly) but something that had to get done last month (when water stopped draining entirely, with two full sinks of grossness, five minutes before we were leaving the house for an entire day). That was money well worth it!
Sewing/Quilting expenses were higher because of my new sewing machine, so that's a one-time expense. I'm hoping to finish two quilts here in the next two months, so that'll be a little more cost with Minky backing to buy (ie, the expensive soft stuff) and long arm machine rental, but then I'll probably take a break for a long time!
Helicopter got an addendum: robot. Peanut built one with a friend, and it's a cute little thing. It can roll around a room and sense obstacles, and move around them. Like a Roomba that doesn't vacuum, but they built it themselves!
How was your August spending?
