Budget Analysis – July 2020

budget analysis

Income

I had no idea what to expect for July. With the big move to the east coast, I was expecting a lot of unplanned expenses. I think overall, I did reasonably well. One of my clients paid off an old invoice overdue by months, which was the main reason for more income than expected.

Other Income $1,300 $1,536 +18.15%
Total $10,620 $10,804 +1.73%

Expenses

The month turned out to be much better than planned. I didn’t go over in any of the categories. The moving cost was significantly lower than I had anticipated. I used my Chase rewards to book the hotels and mostly at eat cheap lunches to keep my food cost lower. Almost 21% lower than the projected expenses.
One of the items that I had project for this month was the fee for the rental property management company. However, I haven’t received the invoices from the management company, so I am moving those expenses over to the next month.

Miscellaneous $2,800 $2,188 -32.61%
Total $6,556 $5,180 -20.99%

Savings

Income for the month stayed pretty consistent compared to the last month. However, I had a lot more one time expenses for July than the previous month. I was projecting a low savings rate. However, I didn’t pay the property management company. So, the projected savings rate is a lot higher than what I projected in the Budget – July 2020 post. 
It was much lower than my 70% goal but much higher than the projected savings rate.
