Apologies I haven't been able to post much in recent weeks, but a lot has been going on. In the meantime, I found some time to provide you with my monthly Savings Rate. Since we were abroad from the 21st of April till the 5th of May this report will contain a higher expense in the holiday category as I put everything I spend during my trip there. On top of that, some of the shared expenses weren't paid back yet increasing this months expenses.

The blog is still alive! Sorry for the drama, but I felt I should at least write something. Don’t expect a new financial post, though. Just a quick personal update to get you up to speed since a lot has changed after I last posted. Changes preventing me from even sitting down at my computer and start typing. Nothing negative, quite the opposite, even.

Quarter one of 2022 has passed with the end of March. Time seems to be flying by faster and faster as I get older. At times I'm happy about this, such as the current state of the world. I hope that as time progress there is light at the end of the tunnel. But at other times I just wish it didn't, like when I'm playing with my daughter. To help pass these relative times I receive a monthly salary from my employer, and this month is no different. Let's take a look at how I managed it this month.

Legal insurance is something you only think about after a bad experience with the legal system. Due to an increased delay in the delivery of my turnkey apartment, I realized that even with all the research I did before signing the sales agreement, I could still end up in a legal battle. While it's now too late, I wanted to protect myself better in the future, so I bought legal insurance.

Why am I looking at the cheapest way to buy furniture? My Brussels apartment is -finally- reaching the final stages of construction and while we are not quite there yet, it's about time to look at how I will furnish it. Having a fully furnished apartment should allow me to rent it out for about €1400/m incl. garage.
