April was a good income month however our expenses were nearly identical to our income (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in April was $13,899.59. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $3,560.58 gross ($1,980.04 net) and my wife received a discretionary bonus of $1,250 gross ($757.96 net). My wife also received a $531.31 auto allowance / mileage reimbursements and $44.99 in internet reimbursements. We earned $18.49 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $13,895.75. Big ticket items include $1,681 in household items, $736 in doctor visits/prescriptions and $344 in personal care.
Next month should be a large expense month because we have concrete work in our backyard to the tune of $4K and a boat repair that could cost ~$2K.
