June 2014 Income Statement

June was another great income month, but also a higher than normal expense month (see attached spreadsheet).

Our total income in June was $10,004.15 (my wife is on disability spending time with baby). In addition to my regular paychecks, my wife received $4,914.29 in SDI (disability). She also received $360 due to a mistake on her last paycheck and $284.43 in extra disability from her company (above and beyond state disability). My wife’s company paid her an $800 auto allowance and a $100 company reimbursement for internet service. We earned $3.01 in interest income from our online savings account.

In June, we spent a total of $14,283.65. Some of the other larger, non-typical expenses include $5,560.54 for our portion of the c-section birth of our daughter and $245.32 in gifts.

July will likely be a low income month with my wife on disability.

June 2014 Net Worth Update (+6,677.26)

In June, our net worth increased $6,677.26, to a total of $288,473.86 (click on spreadsheet below).

What Worked
We contribution at total of $818.88 (low because my wife is currently on disability) to our retirement accounts and saw them increase $4,895.26. We also contributed $3100 to our daughter’s 529 Plan.

What Didn’t Work
We passed a net worth milestone of $290,000 in June, but backslide a little after placing $2,276.09 in charges from our daughter’s birth onto a 0% credit card. We also dipped into our savings a bit to cover a portion of the money used to open a 529 Plan for our daughter. 

Next Month
July may be a low income month (wife on disability) and, as a result, a low net worth increase month.
