Re: Month 16 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Sailorboy1, thanks for the updates. The wife and i plan on retiring and doing the same. Your budget posts at least give us an idea of what we may be looking at.

Re: Month 16 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Couple days left till end of this months budget ends and I think I’m going to be $500 under budget and am trying to decide how many crab claws it would take to correct the “problem”

Not a bad way to reach budget. I've never had that problem but I would suggest a few orders of calamari to help.

Re: Month 16 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Sailor boy I notice you have a pretty healthy gift budget. I wish you were my father-in-law. The best Gift from my in-laws is a pair of socks and a reminder how lucky I am to have married their daughter!
Cheers

Re: Month 16 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

I like to see categories like gifts and holiday travel and medical pop up as reminders to all of those occasional items. We've helped some young people budget and often it goes "and what about when?" and they go "oops, I hadn't thought of that."

You can offset the crab claw count by pairing them with fine wine.

Nature abhors a vacuum, as does a budget (at least a government budget!).

In my planning spreadsheet for budgeting I have an inflation factor. It is kind of scarcy what that says my begainning monthly budget becomes in 15 years using that.
here is our 9 years of cost data.
