July was another very good income month but also another huge expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in June was $15,115.91. In addition to our paychecks, we each received a third “extra” paycheck. I also received a monthly bonus of $830.60 gross ($453.06 net) and $662.49 in auto allowance and mileage reimbursement. My wife received a $50 in company reimbursements. We earned $4.29 in interest income from our savings account.
This month, we spent a total of $ 17,909.89. The 2nd month in a row of $17K+. Big ticket items include $5,360 in furniture, $1,272 for movers, and $760 for housing maintenance.
Next month, we need to cut back on the spending because there are no bonuses or extra income expected in August.
