November was another a great income month and a lower than usual expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot). Best of all, we learned that my wife will keep her job and not be part of her company’s layoff.
Our total income in October was $15,665.25. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a third “extra” paycheck. I also received a monthly bonus of $1,250 gross ($730.82 net), $450 auto allowance and $100 holiday gift card. My wife also received a $923.10 auto allowance / mileage reimbursement, $100 gift card, and $44.99 in reimbursements. We earned $5.75 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $13,848.45. Big ticket items include $436 in car service, $535 in gifts, and $473 in clothing.
Next month, my wife will receive ~$12K in bonuses and I should receive a solid monthly bonus too. Hope to improve our savings balance with this money ?
