PAYDAY!!!!!!!!KSLKNKANKANKslkjlksjclkcb Finally Yes!

March 3rd, 2015 at 02:31 am

So got paid today. I thought my bank was going to lock my account for checking too many times.

$30 407.77. It was more than we estimated but with the $877.92 over spend from last month that money came out of our pocket. Grrrr.
Additionally we needed to purchase a new Printer for the home office. So that was an additional $122.34 out of pocket and we stopped at Borders and picked up some learning books for DS and DD so that was $69.56.

February pay/March expenses.
Income = $30 407.77

$ 835.00 Rent
$ 1000.00 Food
$ 250.00 Gas
$ 100.00 Wife B/day meal
$ 877.92 February overspend/Zero Accounts
$ 2300.00 Shipping
$ 291.90 Spending ($ 100.00 general)($ 69.56 Learning books)($ 122.34 New printer)
$ 24 752.95 Savings

So our total savings now equals $115 769.10. $ 384.18 Less than we thought.
Not a big deal though because some easy consults came in pushing April's income possibly out to $44 000.00, more than making up the additional costs.
So expenses wise it's our biggest month in two years by almost double. I think I blew an OCD banker fuse and have gone into a dazed acceptance state. If I don't dwell on it I can't get annoyed lol.

In other news I suspect our bank has been sending statements to our address but the other tenants have been keeping the mail and opening it.
My wife and I are going down to the bank tomorrow morning to check if any statements have been mailed here. Nosey busy bodies.

The biggest news of the month is we're in some negotiations with a possible new fund that may add 20 - 40% more income into our pockets. It will be sporadic but any extra dollar is welcome.
Its early days yet and we are still working through the due diligence necessities but there's a good faith trial from the 5th to the end of this month. It will give us some numbers we can forecast with.

DS has almost finished learning his alphabet and sounds. I promised him when he can do all his flash cards without missing one he can go to the amusement park for the day. I'm excited to teach him to start reading.

5 weeks 5 days till Game of Thrones!!! !

    Do you get paid $30K a month? Zounds! Or am I reading it wrong?

  6. Nika Says:

    30K a month, and that's AFTER taxes withheld? wow!
    What do you do?

  7. DecisiveParadox Says:

    Yes it was 25K USD net this month, I don't include tax money as its not mine in the first place. We gain on the exchange rate.

    Being self-employed our income can range wildly. Last month was our best to date. Next month its much lower, then the month after will be our new best month.

    We are the owners of a private equity fund. It will be 12 months on April 28th since we went from part time to fulltime.

    There is something extremely joyful about seeing money in one's account!

    People can go to jail for stealing and opening other people's mail. If they actually are taking it, they should be reported. I'd get a locking mail box if it were me. They have an opening big enough for the mailman to put envelopes through a slit, but not so big as to be taken out without a key.

  10. DecisiveParadox Says:

    Unfortunately we are on a sub-lease.
    Any addressed mail goes to a locked box that only the owners can get. they get it before we even see it.

  11. Kiki Says:

    Can you go to online statements only? I have nothing mailed to me any more. I just get an email that a statement is ready to print from their website. That is for all my financial accounts: baking, investments, retirement, credit cards etc.

  12. DecisiveParadox Says:

    We do now, we had statements stopped at our previous apartment but when we updated after our move unfortunate they started sending them again, because we didn't expect them we didn't notice that our neighbours had been helping themselves to the statements for 6 months.
    Some people are just too nosey for their own good.
