One month has passed since I’ve started this site and here are the results of April: Good news, my Net Income is once more positive, bad news my expenses is still over my Job income (!), but expenses is at the right direction – down. Anyway the total result is +177 €.
Tax refund – Ar April I have received a tax refund for my mortgage loan interest 308 €, this is the only thing that got my Net Income positive.
Website income – This was a quit good month as it is only the second one. Earnings were ~4€, or almost 20 times more then previous month. Hope that this income will continue to rise as my website gets more and more visitors. Ar March 400 (Δ+60%) people visited my website out of which 120 (Δ+140%) was from search engines which as more then twice.
Expenses. This is the other story. Although my everyday expenses has dropped by 6% is still remain above my earnings level. My budged is set for 1 th. € including credit payments. Now its 1,3 th. €. I have spent a lot on fuel ~300 € which is 1/3 of my expenses due to 250 km. that I travel each weekend. There was birthday of my girlfriend so even more. But I hope for lower expenses this month.
My Net Worth has increased by+457 € from -11,5 th. € to -10 th. €, but still remain largely negative. At this rate I would reach positive Net Wroth not earlier then Y2014 Anyway things are going into right direction.

Cash reserve increased up to 0,7 th.€ which is almost the 1,1 th.€ (63%) that I need for first half year payment for my girlfriends study I expect it to squeeze my self at May and reach that at next month! This is a critical time because she has examination at June and I want to propose this my plan before that. I’m a bit inpatient, but what can you do
Another thing that I have to do at May is to finish my apartment construction works which will increase it worth to 60 th. € and so that my GF could move in. Its a mess right now and I would understand if she refused to do at present situation
