Each month I will post my income/expenses for the previous month. As I’m receiving my pay check in Euro, I’ll state the used exchange rate. I already subtracted the projected income tax which will be transferred every 3 months.
(assuming €:$ 1:1.17 currency exchange rate )
|Day Job Paycheck||$5658.12|
|Saved Net Income||75%|
I contributed ca. $9600 to my deposit account.
January was another extraordinary income month for me! I did a small side hustle and received $877.50! Additionally I got an almost 10% salary increase. But the best of all – as I’m working in Switzerland and live in Germany, I’m profiting from the strong CHF since the Swiss National Bank decided to abandon the EUR/CHF floor. So this means another 15%(at the time of conversion).
Last month we took a week off, so this month we searched for less expensive relaxing opportunities. We visited the Swiss Alps and did a very romantic snowshoe hike and for some cozy winter evenings I’ve bought a chromecast and signed for a free trial month with netflix. Next month I will cancel the subscription and create a new account for my girlfriend. So we will enjoy another free month of netflix. I love living frugal and not missing a thing.
