April was a good income month and a somewhat high expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in April was $11,622.20. In addition to our two regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $2,500 gross ($1,496.25 net). We also got a $450 monthly auto allowance from my company and $55.99 in internet reimbursement from my wife’s company. We earned $2.83 in interest income from our savings account.
This month, our expenses were a bit higher than budgeted, but not too bad. We spent a total of $10,325.58 in April. Big ticket items include $217 in vacation, $313 in entertainment (concerts), and $484 in pool maintenance.
Next month will be my last month receiving my guaranteed bonus ($2,500 gross monthly bonus) but other than that, it should be a typical expense and income month.
