Our total income in April was $7,170.03. In addition to my regular paychecks this month, my wife received $900 unemployment and 2,367.22 from her new job. We received $50.00 in credit card cash back rewards, a $200 rebate, and we earned $5.61 in interest income from our online savings account.
In April, we spent a total of $10,281.36, requiring us to dip into our savings. In addition to our normal expenses, we paid $1,058.06 in supplemental tax and $2,200 for a new fence.
My wife left her new job after 2 weeks and went back to work for her old company. May will be her first full month of employment since December, so it will help us get back on track. We also both receive a third “extra” check in May.
