As we pre-paid for one of our trips in 2018, it’s no surprise that the past month’s expenditure surged past $5,000 again. In a month of celebration, catch-ups and gift-giving, we spent about $5,300.

With December’s entry, the yearly expenditure came in at $53,000 and on average, we spent about $4,400 a month. This is an amount slightly on the higher side as I was quite confident we could keep to $50,000 at the start of the year.

It’s really alright though since we were still able to clock a very decent saving rate on our income. Moreover, there has been really no conscious attempt to control or rein in the expenses over the past year.

I will probably summarise the entire year’s expenditure and post some thoughts of them in an upcoming post.
