February 2012 Income Statement

We had another very high spending month in February and an above average income month (click on spreadsheet below).
Our total income for February was $8,940.28. In addition to our regular paychecks, my wife earned a $868.27 gross ($723.70 net) quarterly bonus. We also received a $701.43 auto insurance refund, $200.41 rental insurance refund, and $225 in credit card rewards. We earned $0.65 in interest income from our online savings account. My wife’s February reimbursement from her company will arrive in March.
We spent a total of $13,038.03 in February; our fourth largest spending month since we began tracking in March 2007. Two large, non-recurring expenses include $6,497.54 for furniture and $3,744.40 for household items (for the new house).
I thought that we might have all of our major home items purchased in February, but we still need to have our security camera system install, a security door in the garage installed, and our ADT alarm system installed. We put a high value on security, so this money will be well spent. Sadly, our income will not keep pace with our spending in March, so we will be adding to our 0% credit card debt :(
