PoP Income Statement – October 2017

I've been told these glasses make me look smarter. Do they make Kitty PoP look smarter too? =)

I’ve been told these glasses make me look smarter. Do they make Kitty PoP look smarter too? =)

Mr. PoP and I put these income statements together for two reasons. First, we want to be transparent about our finances because we’re trying to be role models for other people who are trying to plant their own pennies (and end up with dollars someday!). Second, we do this to make sure we’re on track to meet our own long-term goals. If you’re not tracking your income statement and balance sheet, we highly recommend you start using a program like Mint to keep track of it all.

Our financial reports are out a bit late this month, since we have been pretty busy with some other matters. Gladly, we have systems in place that help us keep things nice and organized and easy to go back and look at in hindsight, even when life gets a little crazy and daily living (which is far more important!) keeps our focus away from our finances.

Here’s all the numbers…

  • Transfer to Holding Acct for 2017 Roth IRAs: $1,000
