July was a good income month and a very low expense (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in July was $15,757.70. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $3333.33 gross ($1,853.35 net) and my wife received a discretionary bonus of $500 gross ($331.12 net). My wife received $1,763.04 in auto allowance / mileage reimbursements and $44.99 in internet reimbursements. We earned $0.01 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $12,494.20. A much more reasonable amount compared to the last couple of months! Big ticket items include $252.45 in entertainment, $400 in house maintenance and $305 in eye doctor visits/contacts.
Next month, we hope to keep our expenses down, especially since it will be a lower income month.
