July 2012 Budget Roundup = +$7409.54 or an increase of +3.62%
I did buy 2 white blazers (am thinking of returning one, but am waiting for the other to arrive in the mail before I decide which one… if at all), 1 navy blazer (classic!), a skirt on SALE I’ve been coveting for ages, and a dress which I am not sure I am keeping yet.
Will keep you posted.
Update: This is what happened. I returned the dress, didn’t receive one blazer because they were out of stock and I am about $300 richer. You can read about What I bought July 2012 here.
INCOME = $10,894.88
- Gross, not net!
- I also earned some cash back on my credit card which I used towards purchases
EXPENSES = $5518.22 + $2000 in taxes
Okay, so it says: $11,768.22 in the chart but that includes my retirement savings, which aren’t really my base expenses.
With my taxes of around $2000, I spent about $5500 on stuff.
Food stuff. Medical stuff. Tailoring stuff. Face stuff.
NET WORTH = $211,978.98, +$7409.54 or an increase of +3.62%
Stock market went up quite nicely this month.
I put more of my savings into investments.

This video made me think about how populated the world is becoming, and about sustainability in general. Polar bears, tigers, and other common animals that we’re used to seeing in books and on TV are now considered endangered.
A day WILL come where we will have to explain to our children or our grandchildren about how there used to be an animal with stripes called a tiger, and there was a bear all in white that lived in snow.
What will we do then?
