Cost to not cruise - April 2014

We continue tracking our costs while we are taking a 1-year break from full-time cruising - to see how the two lifestyles compare...  (See link below for more background).

Here is April:


Not-cruising months shown in 'green',  'blue' is for water related lifestyle.


It is perhaps best to look at the rolling monthly symmaries,as you can see the month-to-month has been declining.  Mostly this is a result of no transportation costs now that we are 'here', but also it has taken a little time to even out how to share housing costs between all - which is why the -$24 for Groceries this month :-)

Not much else.  Spring is here.  I noted it because the Grass is starting to show green, and some Tulip bulbs are starting to come up.  Kristi's dad noted "planters" and nitrogen fertilizer tanks appearing on the roads as folks look to 'get into their field' for spring planting.. 



====================================================================

And now, here is the standard explanation these days: If this is your 1st time looking at costs, and want some more background on why we are reporting what it costs to not-cruise on a cruising blog - well, we are taking a break by moving back to Minnesota to help out Kristi's folks.  And we thought it would be interesting to be able to compare our costs on Land vs. on Sea., see more here:  mvVikingStar.blogspot.com/.../cost-to-not-cruise-january

For reference here is a summary of what it did cost us to cruise last year:
