August 2012 Budget Roundup = -($573.11) or a -0.27%
My month went very well all things considered.
I am down this month, but there was a little bank SNAFU that made me lose about $3500 that I am hoping to get cleared up tomorrow (they screwed up, BIG time).
For expenses, I think I did fine in August. I returned a $200 dress, didn’t get that $100 blazer, and ended up $300 richer.
I also went through my wardrobe again to ruthlessly cut down on clothing, and I am realizing it all fits into one suitcase ever since I sold/donated stuff, and have been trying to be conscious about my purchases.
In other areas of my life, things are picking up.
I’m on the verge of some big life changing decisions, but I am very excited and more confident than ever in them. More on that later, once things settle down.
Also, this guy should definitely be snapped up by some company in North America or Europe to teach them how to make prosthetics affordable. If I was in this business, I’d fly to China, find this guy, offer him a job or at least an obscene amount of money, and pick his brain.
HE MADE HIS OWN ARMS!!!!!!!
INCOME = $10,900.34
- Gross, not net
- I take home around $7800 a month
- I also made some money via my credit card (yay cash back!)
EXPENSES = $9748.98 (net expenses, no taxes)
So I paid about $3000 to the government, but the main expense this month was setting up for a month-long trip to Hong Kong for about $5000.
Yes. I am leaving to spend a month in one of my favourite cities in the world.
HELLO HONG KONG!
A photograph I took of Hong Kong’s Peak the last time I was there.
TOP 5 EXPENSES THIS MONTH
NET WORTH = $211,405.87 which is -$(573.11) or a decrease of 0.27%
I’m rather annoyed at a certain bank right now, as I should be $3500 richer.
Let’s see if they fix their error tomorrow.
Forget bachelor pad, this would be great for me 🙂 I just don’t really like being near open spaces when I am not on the ground, but otherwise it looks nice.
How did your August go?
