Monthly Financial Snapshot: June 2017

This month was pretty stressful at work. A lot of emergent work, and therefore emergent overtime. But the market is still chugging along, so no complaints from me. 

Jun-17 Comments
Rent $765.00 $750 for rent + $15 Plastiq fees
Internet $55.92 Internet is kind of expensive. But strangely, my phone company dropped their price without me asking for it. No complaints!
Cell Phone $62.57 Last of my T-Mobile prepaid, and switching to Mint SIM for the next 3 months ($13.55/month!). If trial goes well, will stay with them permanently.
Natural Gas $15.40 Lower than normal, probably due to less cooking this month.
Electricity $26.79 Slightly less than average this month.
Water $37.13 Less than average this month.

401(k) Match $194.72 My company matches 3% of gross salary + profit-sharing from last year

Net Income $5,679.75 Below average, but only because the average has been skewed high due to recent overtime / annual bonus.
