My Economy Donut for 2018-09-01 – 2018-09-27.


The save percentage is not 51.3% its even more! This is the power of fixed stock income as a I talked before in my post about preferred stocks.
Thanks to a powerful dividend payout from my favorite Swedish preferred stock ( K2A Knaust & Andersson Pref ) I managed to add an extra cash income of 1200 SEK!
Income from dividend this september month is around 1500 kr ( around 150 USD )
Income from side work* is approximately 2500 kr. ( around 250 USD )
This gives me an incredible and also my personal record save percentage of 63.6 %!!!   🙂
Even though I was eating a lot outside this month I still managed to get over 50% saving of my salary.

My Economy for 2018-09

The previous month electricity bill was around 100 kr this month it was 370 kr.
This big increase is due to record warm weather in Sweden. It was the warmest summer for more then 200 years!
We also got an AC at home running in the evening which contributed to bigger electricity bill.

Fishing in beutiful Sweden

Fishing in beutiful Sweden

I have been fishing this month couple of times after work. When you fish in lakes in Sweden you have to buy a fishing card.
The 4 or 5 biggest lakes in Sweden you can fish for free.
In the open big sea you can fish without fishing card. But I like to fish in smaller lakes thats why I buy a 24h fishing card.
And no I didnt get any fish (sad face) but just being out in the quiet and beutiful nature give me satisfaction.

Its so peaceful, the weather is quite warm and water calm.

Me and my girlfriend have been in cinema and watched PAPILLON. Its about a wrongfully convicted for murder, Henri Charriere who forms an unlikely relationship with fellow inmate Louis Dega (Rami Malek). He is a quirky convicted counterfeiter and togheter they attempt to escape from the notorious penal colony on Devil’s Island.

I liked the movie and Rami Malek is one of my favorit actors! It was a very emotional movie and you feel for the characters and their destiny.


Though it was not as good as I expected it to be I give it 7/10
– It is worth a watch in my opinion, especially when you know that it is based on a true story!!


Todays month unexpected costs goes to our cat. He had to get vaccine so he can spend sometime outside on green grass in the future.
