My Monthly House Expenses – Mid-2016 Update

Hello everyone!  I wanted to be able to update one of life’s biggest monthly costs that I am chewing on – and that is – the cost of living in my house each and every month.  Surprisingly it has been over 2 years since I have written about my payments that go out each month, and to show the community whether that has changed for better or for worse, even though I internally review this each and every month.  I find more data and time interesting, as it can really tell how well you manage and how consistent you are able to keep with your management & money.  Without further-ado here is my 2016 update to my housing expenses!

When will Netflix monthly subscription be “Too High”?

I love Netflix (NFLX).  I honestly do not know where I would be during busy season without the streaming subscription service and even on lazy Saturday or Sunday mornings with the lady binge watching a show with a cup of coffee.  For us “cable cutters”, Netflix has been a wonderful supplement for our entertainment purposes.  Back in 2014, Netflix rose their prices on new customers from $7.99 to $9.99, but didn’t touch us grandfathered customers.  They didn’t touch us, until now.  Our price will go up 25% from $7.99 to $9.99 or a “small” $2 more per month or $24/year (excluding taxes).  Question is – when and at what price will Netflix be too much or too high?

Lanny’s Q1 2016 Goals Update

Now that Q1 is long and in the books and we are already more than 3 weeks into April – I thought it would be a great time to reflect on the last 3 months and see where I am in line with my goals.  There are 9 months to go and I’m curious if I am seeing any sort of light at the end of this tunnel.  Of course, doing a Q1 goals update, also means that another busy season (#5 for me) is in the books and the air becomes more apparent for me to breathe in – all of you accountants – you know what I’m talking about!  I set lofty goals back in December of 2015 for my 2016 year and this first quarter has been a blur.  With the blur – let’s see if I was able to make out anywhere to make progress.
