Budget Analysis – August 2020

Income

August was different for me. In the last 13 years, this was the first month I spent $0 on food. Also, the first month in a very long time, I didn’t eat even once. Let’s see how I did in August.

SourceProjected($)Actual($)DIFF (%)
Full-Time & Side Jobs $6,500 $6,225 -04.23%
401K / HSA Contributions $2,820 $2,820 +0.00%
Rental Income $1,350 $1,556 +15.26%
Other Income $200 $766 +283.0%
Total $10,870 $11,367 +7.03%

Expenses

It’s incredible how much you can save when you don’t have to pay for your food and don’t eat out at restaurants.
I spent 45% less than the actual planned amount. There were two categories where I didn’t spend money. I also made more money than I spent on the miscellaneous category as I got a refund for some items I returned.

Housing $1,409 $1,409 +0.00%

Rental Management $1,750 $1,767 +1.00%
Total $6,166 $3,376 -45.24%

Savings

Income for the month stayed pretty consistent compared to the last month. However, the expenses were much lower. 
FIRE would be a lot closer if I had never had to pay for food or housing.
