Friday Finances: December Week 1,2012

It is time again to check up on my finances and see how well I am sticking to my monthly budget. This week I spent $21.97 on food and used a $3 coupon. I miss getting all the coupons that I used to get in the Sunday paper because I moved to a town where people don’t seem to use coupons…so there is only one packet in the paper instead of the two or three from my old town. I have not found enough coupons in the single packet...

Monthly Financial Check Up: February 2012

This month I came in $2450.78 in the RED as is to be expected since I was not working full time. I also spent a bit on moving including cleaning expenses and an airplane ticket (more on that later) and my income was quite dismal since I only worked eight days of the month.
