The save percentage is around 52%. ( click here for november economy ) I have transferad around 13000 SEK to reduce my mortage. My mortage is now around 7%. I would like it to be 0%. So this mean I will not buy any stocks this month! The stock market is shining red. And I hope that it still will shine for a longer period. I dont mind if the stock market goes down, Iam happy to buy more quality stocks for cheaper price.  I also payed my last debt to a family member around 5000 SEK.

Iam a little sad for not be able to buy stock this month but I want to pay off my mortage first. Then I will see how the stock market develops. Lets wait and see how stock market in january develops, when the Swedish companies start to present the yearly reports.

There are not much days left and new year will begin. I would say Iam happy with the outcome. Maybe I will writte a post later about the year that has gone for me on the stock market.

The electricity bill is high even thou I have lowered the bathroom floor heating could be that we have a lot of light turned on now in winter when its getting darker earlier.

The unexpected sector of the donut are the big table I bought and christmas presents. We some visitors over the month so food expenses was incresed.

We needed a bigger dinner table. Thats why I bought a nice big IKEA table from a patient I treated. He sold it for 800 kr. A good price because a new in IKEA coast about 3600kr. I usually talk a little with patient before the treatment to make them comfortable. And we talked about tables that I was searching for a big one. And he told me that he has one that he dont use. Win win situation.

As you can se I got my 10 days leave at birth of child, well i was expecting it to be around 10 000 SEK but its still okej, Iam grateful we have this kind of support from the goverment.

A little more about child allowance in Sweden.

Child allowance in Sweden:
How much money do I get?
If you and the other parent have joint custody, you share the child allowance. You will each receive SEK 625 per month. If you have sole custody of the child, you receive SEK 1,250 per month. Child allowance is tax-exempt.

If you have two or more children for which you are receiving child allowance, you will automatically receive the large family supplement as well.
This is how much you will receive in child allowance and large family supplement

What do I need to do to receive child allowance?
You do not need to apply for child allowance. It is paid out automatically.

The money will arrive no later than the 20th of every month.
The first disbursement will be made in the month after the child is born and is paid out up to and including the quarter that the child turns 16 years old.

What happens to the child allowance when my child turns 16?
When your child turns 16, they will no longer receive child allowance. The month of your child’s birthday determines how long they will receive child allowance.
