May was an great income month but we spent almost exactly the same about we made, which isn’t good (see spreadsheet screenshot). Our total income in May was $13,221.19. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $916.67 gross ($535.94 net). My wife also received a $1,506.38 auto allowance / mileage reimbursement and I received a $450 auto allowance. We earned $5.16 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $13,205.18. Big ticket items include $902.35 in misc items, $437.63 in clothing, and $248.78 in medical/prescriptions.
Next month we both should get a few thousand in bonuses and I will receive a 3rd “extra” paycheck.
