My October expenses was a little bit higher than usual. I took a trip to Las Vegas.

Personal expenses was low in October but I took a trip to Las Vegas that cost about $350. It was related to the rental property so most of the expenses will be tax deductible at the end of the year. I also had fun while in Sin City, but luckily it was covered partially by rewards accumulated for playing an online game. I will write a separate post about that at a later time.

Not included in this table is an extra monthly payment of $300 to mortgage* principal and a $150 monthly expense for half of a rental property.

October Passive Income = $ 815

October Expenses = $ 2,939

Shortage = $ 2,124

My October passive income covers 28% of my monthly expenses.
