In October, we had a regular income month and a reasonable expense month.
Our total income this month was $12,267.69. My wife maxed out on her 2023 social security contributions so her paychecks for the remainder of the year will be a bit larger ($6,004/paycheck vs $5,444.56/paycheck). In addition to my wife’s regular paychecks, she received a $110.87 reimbursement for internet service. We also earned $146.98 in interest income from our savings accounts.
This month, our expenses totaled $12,054.32. Large expenses included $3,142.12 in groceries/dinning, $2,645.84 in household items, and $1,875.92 in pet care and pet insurance.
Next month should be a pretty typical income and expense month.
