I’ve included an income/expense report within this post. By looking at the numbers, here’s some quick thoughts on improvements I can make for the rest of the year.
* Spend less money on dining. Lunch at the cafeteria is almost $7.00! That’s unacceptable.
* Find some ways to make more money. Yeah…
* I’ve modified Quicken’s “Auto” category to include depreciation for my car. That category also contains mass transit expenses and should probably be renamed “Transportation” instead.
* The “Interest Exp” category contains the interest paid for my car loan (at 2%) and student loan (at about 3% last time I checked).
