2017 February Expenses Review


My February expenses will probably be the lowest I’ll ever have. Since I was in the hospital for almost a week and then was recovering from childbirth, my variable expenses were pretty much non existent other than the increased medical expenses.

Monthly Expenses By Category February

Mortgage 829
HOA / Property Tax 963
Insurance (HO/Car) 172
Utility (Electricity, Phone, DSL) 153
Total Fix Expenses 2,117
Variable Expenses
Gasoline/Car Related 0
Dining Out/Grocery 28
Clothing/Personal Care 0
Household 0
Entertainment/Leisure 10
Medical/Health 479
Childcare 31
Misc 0
Total Variable Expenses 548
Total Monthly Expenses 2,665
2017 Expenses YTD 5,377

This month I have several categories where I spent $0 due to the birth of my baby. I was homebound for most of the month and my family and partner cooked most of my meals so I didn’t have to cook. I added a new category for Childcare this month where in the past I was including the expenses in the Misc category. In another news, I no longer have a rental expense. I will write about this in a separate post.

February Passive Income = $ 561

February Expenses = $ 2,665

Shortage = $ 2,104

My February passive income covers about 21% of monthly expenses. Year to date is 25%.
