That's easy. Our outlay pretty much equals our income...

Wine purchases is much, much higher for us.

Everyone’s amount will represent how they live and will be different.

My wife is already wondering how we can get a local rum in other states, and we're still 5 years out!
I'm cool with mega breweries and big distilleries!

Been full-timing four months now and we are averaging about $1,200.00 a month.......

Very few commercial RV parks; lots of COE, BLM, USFS, PA and Indian Casinos has really kept our lodging costs at a minimum.... We also throw in a little boon-docking when we find a spot we really like.... (Costs have ranged from $5.00, $7.50, $8.00, $11.00, $12.00, $13.00, $17.50, $20.00 and a few commercial ones that have been as high as $55.00 (that won't happen again)....

In addition, we find that by staying at the above CG's for longer periods of time, our diesel costs are drastically reduced as well.... (We are currently staying at a COE for two weeks because it's a beautiful location and it's only $13.00 a night for 50 amp and water.... Two weeks with zero diesel consumed)

We also use our slow-cooker and InstaPot to cook meals that allow us to freeze "left-overs" for additional meals which is another cost saver....

We use CG electricity for heating/cooling (AC/heat strip) and for powering our water heater..... Hardly ever use our propane - mainly for our fridg when on the road....

Will be headed to our winter location south of Corpus Christi, TX where we've found a nice resort with FHU's for $325.00 a month.... So for 3.5 months we will spend zero on diesel...

Dang, we have spent about $7,000 on food so far this year between eating in and eating out for 2 people. I wish we could cut that back but,,,,, probably won't happen.
