Friday Finances: September 2015, Week 2

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: $8.41 on lunch because I went out with a...

Is It A Good Idea To Pre-Pay Your Rent?

I was speaking to a new friend who just moved to my apartment complex. She told me that she had prepaid her rent for the whole year so that she did not have to worry about it.

She pays $450 a month and she paid 12 months up front. That means she paid $5,400 to the...

I Want A New Tablet

I want a new tablet that I can use as an alternative to my laptop for work and school. Right now my laptop is a bit heavy and bulky and it is not convenient to carry it to work and school every day.

It has served me well so far but the firmware is...

Money Update: May 2015 Week 4

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...
