Did you take into account all the stuff you spend money on at home that you won't be spending while away?

What do you normally spend on food? Cleaning supplies? Booze? Gasoline? Entertainment? Will your utility bills be lower because you won't be heating or cooling or illuminating the house as much as when you're at home? All that stuff adds up and can put an additional thousand or more into your travel budget.
