In August, we were blessed with a good income month and a low expense compared to what we usually average (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in August was $12,751.80. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $1,950 gross ($1,084.40 net) and my received $549.55 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 $12,465.59. It’s such a blessing to have spent so much less two months in a row! Big ticket items include $834 in boat property tax and $951 in household items.
Next month, my wife should receive a large quarterly bonus that we hope to put into savings.
