October 2016 Income & Expenses
The amounts below are cash amounts and are net of taxes, insurance, 401k contributions, HSA, etc. In other words, the amounts are what get deposited and withdrawn from my accounts.
Day job (take home pay) --- $13692.23
Dividends/Interest --- $162.59
Total net income --- $13854.82
Expenses --- $7143 (Taken from Mint)
Savings $6711.82 --- Rate 48.44%
October was a challenging business month. The start was very slow, but eventually things picked up and it turned out to my best income month of the year. That was somewhat surprising considering all the national election buzz. My savings amount total was within in $1 of last month which is a strange coincidence. The net result is that my savings rate checked in again just below the 50% mark.
Even though my expenses were up a bit, some of that can be attributed to early knee surgery bills. There are thousands more on the horizon as the amounts from the various professionals and rehab facilities are tallied. Strangely enough none have been billed to me yet. They are coming though, no doubt about it!!
November is humming along both on the job front and the expense front. Christmas is going to break the bank, but at least we have most of the presents purchased.....I hope.
