Here is a breakdown of my income for August.
|Credit Card Other||$175|
August’s income was pretty good. I got 5 paychecks from my document review job since there were 5 Fridays in August. I was also able to work one weekend making time and a half which increased my pay quite a bit.
My other sources of income only added up to about $380. When you consider my other sources of income were more than enough to pay for my food, transportation, phone, and entertainment expenses for the month it does make the other sources of income sound more substantial.
I won’t be tracking my savings rate this month since I did a lot of moving money around to different accounts making it difficult to determine my real savings rate. I will track my months of expenses saved instead. I only count the money I have saved in my IRAs and 401ks for this purposes. I have about $60,000 saved in those accounts. If I were able to continue to replicate this month’s expenses of $947.19 that would mean I have 63.34 months of expenses saved.
This month’s income will be down significantly since I will be in SE Asia and not working. I hope I will be able to figure out a way to make some money while I’m over there. If not, I will just make a tiny bit of money from my non-job sources of income.
