Monthly expense report: June

After the stellar income month of May (where I almost cracked the 6.000 euro income from work) June was a slow transition back to a more normal income.

Income: 3 641,14 euro

Expenses: 1 670,50 euro

Savings: 1 970,64 euro or 54,12%

Yes June was the second month this year of me saving more than 50% of my income. It just shows I need to work on my income side to push the savings rate higher.

Income

Income for the month was my normal wages + the holiday money from work. We didn’t go on a real holiday this year so the holiday money all went straight to my savings account. The bulk of my savings this year actually come from the big pay out last month and this month. The savings account was quicker than I thought back in shape after the big expense of paying for the new car in March.

Expenses

June expenses were pretty average. I did go bowling with friends but at 20 euro that was a pretty cheap night out. I also purchased a house warming gift for friends who bought a house with pool (they are not the frugal kind). I did think the house warming party would turn into a gay orgy near the end of the evening but that did not materialise so with hindssight I definitely should have gone for a different house warming gift 😉

With the first heat wave we also visited a local swimming pond. Not too many people, decent food and a low entrance fee means I didn’t break the bank for this either.

Expect for the holiday money June was a pretty average month. With me still spending too much money on food at work. My wasteline continued to suffer (which perhaps explains why the orgy never materialised .. Surely they didn’t wait till we left … did they?!!)
