February was an okay income month, all things considered (wife unemployed), but we weren’t able to keep our expenses as low as we would have liked (see attached spreadsheet).
Our income totaled $7,716.98 in February. In addition to my regular paychecks this month, my wife received $1,800 unemployment. We also received a $2,154.27 refund check from our mortgage prepaid & escrow, $96.78 in credit card cash back rewards, and we earned $8.10 in interest income from our online savings account.
In February, we spent a total of $7,599.12. Most were standard expenses, but one larger non-standard expenses was $195 for my wife’s hair and nails (interviewing expense).
Next month we should receive a $200 electricity rebate for our new pool pump.
