August 2018: Income & Expenses Budget Roundup
Ed: Sorry for the SUPER late posting. I was on vacation and then it was a mad rush to catch up on life.
THE INCOME = $25,540.16
Day Job: $24,328.71
Day job .. is my day job. It’s what I earn each month, working 40 hours a week. Nothing to see here. Boring.
Save. Spend. Splurge. Products sold, include:

INCOME GOALS FOR THE NEXT MONTH
Umm… not to get fired?
Seriously, I am too tired to think about income goals. My day job stays as-is.
The real income goal is for the blog. I’d like to crack $1500 but ..UGH THIS IS SO TIME CONSUMING FOR SO LITTLE MONEY.
(I’m spoiled by my day job, really.)
THE EXPENSES = $6064.61
Not going to even lie to you, half of that was shopping, around $3000 worth, but the good news is that I’ve already returned 50% of that, so September will look good.
My goals for my expenses however, are much easier.
I am going to spend a little bit of money on repairs and fixes of things, and ramp up on the resale of items that I’ve already KonMari’d out of my closet — things that no longer fit because I’m bigger now after having had Little Bun and have finally faced the music, and other items that just no longer fit who I am.
Oh by the way — if you follow me on Instagram @saverspender (why wouldn’t you!? :-P), I have started making the Stories portion of my feed to cover what I buy, what I am returning, what I am selling, etc. It will be more fun and interactive (YES! I actually talk in these videos and Little Bun makes voice cameos too!)…
You get to see in advance shopping stuff like this 😉
