“Its not how much money you make, but how much you keep, how hard it works for you and how many generations you keep it for” – Robert Kiyosaki
We have had an absolute stinker of a month! I’m rather fed up of these little expenses that keep creeping up. We are still very new into our new house though and we put off some things until we moved. Now they are coming back to bite our budget!
Income April 2018
I haven’t included Matched Betting profits because we haven’t calculated them yet (we are trying something new) but anything we do make will be used as spending money for our holiday this month!
Expenses April 2018
Some explaining is required around our whopping other expenses!
£203.96 New Tires
The driving 80+ miles a day has really worn down my poor car. The legal limit was reached on the old tires so we had to do this one.
£148.84 Mr Fire Car Insurance and £475.10 for MOT
We have been keeping Mr Fire’s car as a “back up” but we now see how expensive that is! We are hoping to sell his car and then get refunded some money back on the insurance.
Poor Mr Fire’s dentist treatment is still ongoing. He has another appointment now for 3 months which should give us some time to recover.
Mr Fire treated himself to a lunch. I haven’t put it under fin but I suppose I should?
£69 Part for bike
Unfortunately Mr Fire’s bike had a face off with my car and lost (woo hoo my car!) My car is badly scratched but no real damaged was done. Mr Fire’s bike lost its wing mirror so it had to be replaced.
I’m regretting asking Mr Fire to calcaulte our savings rate now:
Its not going very well! I’m all for finding the positive and we did have some good luck as whilst we are £593.90 short on our expenses I found £600 in my paypal account left over from my Matched Betting days which will cover it!
I’ve been obsessing a bit over our budget too which I will share in a blog post (hopefully) this month. I have some slight OCD about things going in the right “pots” even though I know its all relative really.
I’m hoping for a less expensive month this month however we are away on holiday this month.
