From my recurring income series; Our net savings / spending numbers for February 2016:
Spending was pretty decent, nothing really to report. Spending pie looks as follows: 44% home, food/dining at 20%, then the auto at 8%. “Health and fitness” for a doctor visit in January at 8%. Bills were 12%, gifts/donations 5%, other 4%.
We had our usual rental income and received 2 paychecks each, but had a lot of extra income – a bonus each, plus a tax return. With our reasonable spending we hit a total savings rate of 82%. That’s just above our goal from January. Income will be back to normal in March, and spending on the average-ish side, so I’ll set a saving goal of 75%.
