In September, we were blessed with an incredible income month and a higher than expected expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in September was $23,057.55. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly bonus of $1,950 gross ($1,084.39 net) and my wife received a quarterly bonus $15,000 gross ($9,664.54 net). My wife also received $848.14 in auto allowance / mileage reimbursements and $46.99 in internet reimbursements. We earned $2.81 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $16,131.03. Honestly, we thought we did better and were surprised to see such a large figure. Big ticket items include $1,107 in doctor bills and prescriptions,$575 in car registration, and $1,800 in tithes.
Next month, we will probably have a more standard income and expense month.
