October was a very good income month and a slightly high expense month (click on spreadsheet below).
Our total income for October was $8,065.98. I received a third “extra” paycheck this month. In addition to our regular paychecks, my wife received a $25 company reimbursement. We also received $58.08 in credit card cash back rewards and we earned $2.14 in interest income from our online savings account.
Our spending continues to be higher than plans - we’re not within our budget of ~$6,600. In October, we spent a total of $9,326.18. Some of the larger non-standard expenses were: $475.70 for two new car seats, $200.78 for brakes, and $119.57 for a baby monitor.
Next month (November) should be another very good income month because my wife receives a third “extra” paycheck and what may be a large quarterly bonus.
