I've decided to get caught up with my posts of our monthly costs.
May was our 21st month of cruising full-time on our Bristol 29.9.
We had a first in May – zero spending in restaurants/entertainment thanks to Covid. “Entertainment” consists of one-off expenditures like movie
tickets, museum or festival admissions, etc. Not something like Netflix which is a subscription.
As far as traveling goes, in May we ripped off the very-sticky velcro and went from Vero to Beaufort
Here we go:
Groceries/Non-food Groceries/Alcohol: $631.67
Cell data, iCloud storage
, and Garmin
inReach subscription: $112.34
Marina: $416.63 (July and August slip on the Chesapeake paid in advance)
Restaurants/Entertainment: $0 (this is a first, and only because of Covid)
Annual life insurance
stuff: $71.39 (diesel oil
, bottom cleaner)
Subscriptions and Random: $123.66 (Netflix, Prime, New York
Times, tips, etc.)
2020 Monthly average: $3,150.12
2019 monthly average: $3,457.97
2018 monthly average (September – December): $4,465.95
Monthly average since starting to cruise
