October was an even better income month than last month, which was phenomenal, but it was also a large expense month(see attached spreadsheet).
Our total income in August was $13,672.80. In addition to our regular paychecks, my wife received an unexpected bonus check ($3,000 gross, $1,683.60 net). She also received a $600 auto allowance, and a $100 company reimbursement for internet service. I received a third “extra” check this month. We earned $2.49 in interest income from our online savings account.
In October, we spent a total of $11,199.67 continuing our trend of blowing our budgetJ. Some of the larger, non-typical expenses include $550 brake job for car 2 and ~$3K in household items.
