Money Update: May 2015 Week 4

Posted on May 24, 2015 in budget | 0 comments

I forgot to post my Friday Finances last week so here is the money update for that period. $41.06 on food for the week. This was mostly fruits and vegetables that I got from United. It seems these things are getting more expensive! They also go so quickly because I now eat a lot more fruits and vegetables every day. I shudder to think of what my food bill at the end of the month will be because I am very close to going over. $20.00 on the phone. My portion of the shared bill has gone down because there is another user on the shared plan. So far this shared plan has worked out well because we...

New Theme

Hello everyone, You may have noticed a new look around the blog. I had to get this change made because of some technical issues. I am still getting everything settled so please bear with me. There have been multiple attacks on the site and it was a gigantic mess. I have had someone working on it constantly and finally we are making progress. We have settled on this new theme and are still in the progress of customization. This is off topic but as I was searching for images for this post I thought the word ‘new’ looks rather odd. Anyway, it was time for a new theme..so let me know...

Friday Finances: May 2015, Week 3

Posted on May 15, 2015 in Save Money | 0 comments

Every Friday I post about my finances for the week in an effort to monitor my income and expenses. I used to post all of the actual figures but I have recently decided to stop doing this. I will now post SOME of my actual expenses and leave the rest to your imagination. All income and expenses are recorded in Mint and any amounts are rolled over into the next month. This week my expenses were: $38.13 for gas and I was almost on empty. The last time I bought gas was at the beginning of March, so I went over a month without needing to fill up. I spent $54.41 on food and $19.53 on household...

How To Save Money At Target

Posted on May 6, 2015 in Daily Links | 0 comments

I don’t shop at Target much because it is simply not close to where I live any more. I have to make a special trip since I don’t really like driving…but it is always worth it when I do end up going. I do like to find ways to save money, whether it be from using coupons or buying off the clearance racks when possible. I did not know there were so many different ways to save money at Target..but after reading the featured post for today I think I may have to include that store in a few more shopping trips. Over at The Penny Hoarder, you can read Forget Target Coupons: These...

The Benefit Of Using A Credit Card To Pay My Rent

Posted on May 3, 2015 in Finances | 0 comments

Most  of you know by now that I try to use my credit card to pay for all purchases. This extends to using the credit card to pay my rent! In fact although it is free for me to use the card now, even with a fee there was a benefit of using a credit card to pay my rent. I currently use a credit card that gives me 2% cash back on paying my rent. I get 1% as soon as I make the purchase and then get the other 1% when I make the payment. I have a system where I am paying my cards now every two weeks because the payments are processed electronically so I do not fear having a late payment with two...

This week my expenses were: $17.03 on household items that I had to run to the store for because I ran out mid week. I did not have any coupons so I did not save money this week and I am now out of money that category for the...

Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you all know I am still alive and the blog is still functional. I am just so VERY busy with school right now that I have been neglecting trying to find ways to save money. I hope to get back on track pretty soon because we all know how important it is to save money and make your money work for you. In the mean time, please enjoy these blasts from the past. Being Broke Is A State Of Mind. Here I talk about my thoughts that being broke is simply a state of mind. I think there is a big difference between being poor and being broke!
