The picture speaks of recurring expenses attempting to achieve perfect balance with recurring income. A beautiful harmony.
Now oftentimes in our family, however, this balancing act seems more akin to a galactic battle, in which unseen forces struggle all month long hoping to achieve total household dominance! Does anyone else feel like expenses are rarely 'recurring' and usually come out of NOWHERE sometimes??
General Thoughts on this Month: Our 'unexpected' expenses approached galactic proportions this month...to the tune of over $1,400. How often do both of our vehicles need new brakes and rotors...at the same time! Thankfully, our 'income' side (the good side of the force, I'll call it) fought back hard as well, and we were able to still manage a positive savings rate (see my all-time Savings Rate page here).
Anyway, listed below is a detailed display of all income and expenses specifically for the month of May 2017. Every penny in and out, recorded!
