Friday Finances: April 2014, Week 1
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.
This week my income was:
Paycheck!!! Yaaaay we got paid on the first of the month, no fooling.
This week my expenses were:
Rent. Sadly it is due on the first of the month so that gets paid early in the month.
Car. I had to also get the car payment sent out.
Insurance. This is also due at the beginning of the month and gets sent off when the car payment goes out.
I did have a few dollars of shortage roll over from last month from the categories where I was able to stay under budget. It was only a couple of dollars in most cases but it does mean that I have that ‘extra’ to spend this month if I choose to. If not it will just remain as a buffer in my checking account for another time.
Groceries. I spent $68 (rounded) on food this week and got almost everything that was on my list. I do want to get some more fruits and vegetables but I will get them on a later shopping trip.
