December Income

Here is a breakdown of my income for December.

Job Income


Online Income




Lawsuit Settlement






My income was up mainly because I worked more hours for the month.  My income will be down severely in January since I’m returning to school.  I hope to significantly increase the amount of my other income to help offset the loss of job income.

Small Electric Bill and Big Gas Bill

My latest electric bill was only $11.14 for 50kwh of electricity.  My gas bill was $84.72 which was larger than I expected.  I keep my thermostat low but my apartment is poorly insulated and drafted.  My furnace looks to be quite old and is probably not very efficient.  For now I have to have gas since I can’t do without heat.  Sometime in April or May though I will once again cancel my gas service.  Next time I move I’ll make sure the place has electric heat.

November Expenses

Here is a breakdown of my expenses for November.













Student Loans




Medical/Dental should go down this month because I won’t have a dentist appointment.  Transportation should be down this month because November’s total includes paying for six months of insurance.  Student loans will be up because I’m paying off my private student loan.  Everything else should remain roughly the same.

Job Income


Online Income/Ebay


Bank Bonuses






My job income should go up this month because I will have three paychecks.  Online income was way up for November due to selling some links and a large affiliate commission.  That won’t be repeated this month and online income will go way down for the month.  I’m unlikely to have any bank bonuses this month and interest will stay about the same.  Overall I am pretty happy with the amount of income and hope I can match it in December.

October Income

Here is a breakdown of my income for October.

Job Income




Online Income/Ebay






My income was down a little this month.  This was due both to fewer hours at my job and less alternative income.  Both should be up this month and my overall income should be over $2000 this month.
