Weekly Spending Money Update:
- Auto and transport was expensive because I have a biweekly car payment of $121.00 and then $70.00 in gas. A lot of the gas I used this week was due to a lot of driving for work – I’ll be able to get most back through my mileage expenses.
- I spent about $110.00 on food and dining, shopping (books), and $10 of the money I pulled out the bank.
- The $65.00 in personal care was a massage therapy appointment that I will be able to expense back to my health plan.
- Then I made a purchase for the blog at $21.00.
Weekly Spending Money: Thoughts
This week coming up, we’ll be going into our first week of only grocery shopping three times a month – this will be our off week. I’ll have to plan my meals ahead of time to make up for the lack of easy option food available in the house.
I also get paid this week so I’ll have to watch my weekly spending more because I have an influx of cash coming in. In one of my previous posts, I said I wanted to move all our automated payments into our joint account so both of us can see the money going in and payments going out. I have Monday off so I plan to devote some time to putting in the phone calls to make this happen.
My friend will also be coming over tomorrow to help me get our basement ready for a tenant so we can have an extra source of income. Wish me luck!
Have a happy Monday, Cens’ers!
