Every Friday I post about my finances for the week in an effort to monitor my income and expenses. I used to post the actual figures but I have recently decided to stop doing this.

Instead I will post on the categories for spending or income without actually giving the specific numbers.

This week my income was:

Paycheck: We get paid on the first of the month so that starts off the budget for the month nicely.

Swagbucks: I got a $5 Walmart gift card by redeeming points.

This week my expenses were:

Rent: I do need to pay this so I don’t get kicked out on the streets.

Car: I ‘splurged’ and got a $5 car wash instead of the $4 wash I normally get. I also paid the car loan and the insurance bill as those get paid during the first week of the month.
