May 2017 Budget Roundup = $486,265.48 or an increase of $12,674.37 or 2.61%
I saw this and was so happy because I as spending time with Baby Bun (quality time) and loving his little toddler ways.
These are dandelions about to turn into “fuzziesss!!” (as Baby Bun would say)? It is gorgeous. No idea why they’re called “weeds” when I find them quite attractive.
I started working this month, so you’ll see some income coming in for a while which will help my net worth get back to where it was a year ago.
So… this contract will basically have me break even and get back to where I was in 2016? 🙂

My blog income this month has not been stellar because of a few site, and plugin SNAFUs which I have fixed but have hurt my visitors.
It just has been hard to do it all and I was really not in touch or thinking about the blog while I was planning and traveling in the U.S. to help my aunt.
Frankly, it was the farthest thing from my mind.
Save. Spend. Splurge. Products sold and counted as net revenue (after fees), include:
- The Investing Tool
- Book: How to start a blog and make an extra $1000 a month
- Book: How to invest your money forever (U.S. & Canada versions available)
- Wanderlust Scarves – Silk habotai made and printed here in Montreal, Canada. Each scarf is $55 USD including free shipping worldwide.
My expenses were out of control this month so I guess it is fortuitous that I started working as well!
I have expenses in a separate budget for my aunt which I marked as Miscellaneous above, then I have expenses related to starting work again — Baby Bun daycare then switch to a fancier preschool, pants not fitting from having put on some Mommy-At-Home-Eating-Pastries-And-Being-Sedentary, and just office stuff like getting my jackets dry cleaned for storage, and all the things I have put off because I had $0 income before.
TOP 5 EXPENSES
Crazy. I can’t even look at those numbers. Everything hit at once.
NET WORTH = $486,265.48 or an increase of +$12,674.37 or +2.61%
My net worth isn’t so hot this month. Hopefully next month will be better and I can get back into the 500s.
NET WORTH FROM PAST 12 MONTHS
At least it’s on an uptick?
DIVIDEND INCOME = $485.48
It got reinvested into more stock the month before. I am not concentrating on this so much as I am concentrating on just getting stabilized again.
BABY BUN’S NET WORTH = $18,239.63 or an increase of +$312.70 or +1.71%
At least The Bun is killing it as usual. No expenses for him, all income. Sweet deal, I must say.
Just to making money.. and my vacation of course. I am seriously hankering for some time off where my brain doesn’t do anything but lie there and sleep.
