From my recurring income series; Our net savings / spending numbers for April 2016:
Spending was a big high, nothing really to report. Spending pie looks as follows: 37% home, food/dining at 26%, then “shopping” 27%. Bills were 8%, entertainment 12%, shopping 8%, other 3%, gifts/donations 6%.
We had our usual rental income and received 2 paychecks each. With our reasonable spending we hit a total savings rate of 75%. That’s just at our goal from February. Income will be average in May, and spending around average to low maybe, so I’ll set a saving goal of 75%.
