Income and Expenses, Savings Rate for Q3 2016


Time has passed very quickly, it is already November and the time to look, how I managed during the third quarter, and how my journey towards financial independence is progressing. The past year has so far gone reasonably well, although I'll not achieve my dividend income goals, I'm still fairly satisfied with my achievements. Since this is the second year when I keep a stricter control of my spending, I  also made a comparison with last year's results. As I mentioned in my first income / expenditure report, I will make a summary on a quarterly basis, because my months in the case of income are very different. This will give me a better view of the overall situation and hopefully will inspire some of my blog readers.
