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:

$18.91 on food for the week. This is the beginning of a new month so it is always good to get more things because I was really running on the dregs of last month’s groceries.

My printer ran out of black ink so I paid $27.99 to get that replaced. I am thinking of getting rid of this printer because of the hassle of buying ink all the time. I have been able to fit the purchases into my budget but I think now that with ink being so expensive then it is really taking a lot out of money I could be spending elsewhere.
