November was a good income month but also a high expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in November was $13,214.91. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly and bonus of $1,708.34 gross ($964.01 net) and a $450 monthly auto allowance. My wife received a $1,580.66 auto allowance / mileage reimbursement and a $44.99 internet reimbursement. We earned $4.03 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $13,616.32. Big ticket items include $509 in clothing, $466 in doctor and dental visits, and $342 in personal care.
Next month should be an awesome income month. I will receive a 3rd “extra” paycheck, a good monthly bonus and my wife will receive her quarterly bonus.
