September was another very good income month, but we had a few last minute large expenses that blew the budget.Our total income in September was $13,739.35. In addition to our regular paychecks, I received $2,049.71 PTO payout and last weeks pay. My wife’s company paid her an $800 auto allowance and a $100 company reimbursement for internet service. We also received $95 from Verizon and a $30 for our daughter’s 529 Plan. We earned $5.38 in interest income from our online savings account.
In September, we spent a total of $16,789.56! Not something we expected the month I quit working. Some of the larger, non-typical expenses include $6,366 for a new HVAC, $500 for a new laptop, and $310 for new brakes and rotors.am very interested to see if we can dramatically reduce our expenses in October. My wife’s net income each month is $6,300.28 plus an additional $900.00 for auto allowance and internet service. So, $7,200 or less is the goal.
