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:



This week my expenses were:

$18.21 on food which I paid for using a gift card that I had been given almost a year ago. The gift card was for a specific restaurant that I had not ever been to in the past and so I stuck it away forgot about it. I discovered the card recently and found out that it had to be used within the next two months or I would lose the value.

I was in the general area of the restaurant today so I decided to swing by and use that card finally. The food was really good, made more so by the fact that I did not have to shell out any of my own cash for it I suppose.
