April 2015 Budget Roundup = $371,448.86 or an increase of +$28,758.59 or +8.39%
I kind of have a love hate relationship with April.
On the one hand, SPRING! Pretty things! Warmer weather! Sunshine!
On the other hand, TAXES! Boo! Money disappearing! No refunds for the rest of my life! Ick!
Well.. at least I’m making money.
INCOME = $18,400
This is all from my day job.
I don’t work 100% of the time, but when I do, I try and make the most of it.
EXPENSES = $4267.14
..but a chunk of that is a credit to a store, and another chunk is because I’m pending some returns.
All in all, I think it was more around $3500 this month, as we did not plan on buying a grill.. or at least, I wasn’t planning on it.
TOP 5 CATEGORIES OF SPENDING
NET WORTH: $371,448.86 or an increase of +$28,758.59 or +8.39%
WOO HOO! And this is even AFTER taxes.
AFTER I paid my taxes for last year.
I’m pretty thrilled with this trajectory. I wonder if I could hit $400,000 by June…
BABY BUN’S NET WORTH: $8839.66 or a decrease of -$42.38 this month
Index funds have been dipping a little so The Bun is not doing quite as well as Mommy Bun.
..to not spending more money?
April is always a terrible month for me, particularly since I have to pay taxes. *sigh*
I was also and am still also under a lot of stress at work. I have this need to do everything and to do it perfectly. It’s taking a toll on me.
