Hello readers, this is the third post today.
In April , I earned the following income, which is 4.4% decline YOY because I paid union dues and other deductibles this year. Ridiculous.
|Item||2017 April [JPY]||2016 April [JPY]||change [%]|
|Take-home pay from my day time job||746,597||784,159||-5.0|
|US Dividend income after tax (estimate)||77,266||75,440||2.4|
|Japan dividend income after tax[actual]||0||0||0|
My expense in April decreased by 7.2% YOY because in large part I spent less in clothes and entertainment this year than last year.
|Item||2017 April [JPY]||2016 April [JPY]||change
|Grocery and dine out||116,212||116,077||-0.1|
|Healthcare including gym||14,363||14,724||-2.5|
|Mobile and ISP||8,494||5,922||43|
|Travel and transportation||32,947||13,159||150|
|Clothes and laundry||3,921||99,011||-96|
|Entertainment and education||9,160||45,619||-80|
April’s saving rate is 54%. My dividend income covered 20% of my total expense. Again I spent on food outrageously, specifically JPY 116,212.
Have a great weekend.
