December 2016 Income Statement

December was an AWESOME income month, especially considering that I am unemployed (go wife!).  As expected during the Christmas season, our expenses were higher than normal (see spreadsheet screenshot).

Our total income in December was $22,434.03.  We were very blessed in that my wife received a $17,325 quarterly bonus ($10,152.65 net) this month!  In addition to my wife’s normal two paychecks, she also received a third “extra” paycheck.  I received $1,800 in unemployment.  My wife also received $55.24 in company reimbursements. We earned $4.56 in interest income from our savings account.

This month, our spending was higher, mostly because of Christmas gifts.  We spent a total of $15,974.46 in December.  Big ticket items include $2,884 in giving, $1,900 in extra mortgage payments, and $1,707 in groceries & dinning.

January should be my last month on unemployment.  I expect to start my new job January 30th.   Happy New Year!
