From my recurring income series; Our net savings/spending numbers for March 2015:
Got expenses back into check this month, more around our long term sustainable average. Our home (mostly mortgage interest, property tax, and insurance) accounted for 41% of our spending. Food followed at 26% of our spending, then entertainment and health/fitness at 8% each. And then transport at 5%, and that spending was mostly some bicycling maintenance / tires thanks to all our miles on the road 🙂 Bills clocked in at 5% of our spending, and then general shopping and gifts accounted for the last slice of our spending pie.
Our tax refund made this month look a bit better, so all in all we saw a 76% savings rate. I’ll set a goal for April of 70% – shouldn’t be too hard to hit this month – again with no major spending expected maybe with some luck we’ll hit 80%.
