From my recurring income series; Our net savings / spending numbers for October 2015:
Spending came in well below our average, mostly because our average has gotten so high… The spending pie was heavily weighted to food and home, hitting at 32% and 41% of our total spending respectively. Everything else was kept in pretty good check.
We received a little rental income and received 2 paychecks each. With our reasonable spending we hit a total savings rate of 73%. That’s right about our goal of 75%, so good deal 🙂 Income will start to get higher in November due to some overtime, and I expect we’ll be able to keep spending in check pretty well. So for November I’ll set a bit of a stretch saving goal of 80%. We’ll see.
