In October, we were blessed with a great income month and a reasonable expense month (see spreadsheet screenshot).
Our total income in October was $15,753.12. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received a monthly and quarterly bonus of $5,100 gross ($2,836.11 net). My wife also received $1,451.28 in auto allowance / mileage reimbursements and $46.99 in internet reimbursements. We earned $8.06 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $13,072.92. It was nice to get our expenses back down to a somewhat more reasonable level. Big ticket items include $702 in boat insurance, $206 in doctor visits/medicine, and $239 in entertainment.
Next month, our expenses will probably be higher due to Christmas but my wife should receive a $1,000 bonus.
