Welcome to Money Mondays!

This is the FIRST Money Mondays for the new year. I will be doing a post on my finances for the previous year a bit later.

(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)

I used to post my financial inflows and outflows on Fridays in the past but I decided to move this to Mondays instead. Normally I go grocery shopping on Sundays after church. Now I  will post the last week’s worth of financial inflows and outflows on Monday so that I can include the weekend spending as well.

This week my financial outflows were:

$21.65 on items from Bath and Body Works. I got some candles and used a coupon so I did not pay full price. Now I have enough candles from stocking up at the semi-annual sale in December. I have some multiples that I can exchange for other scents during spring. If I find something I like then I will exchange a current candle from my stash instead of buying it outright.

This week my financial inflows were:

$25 for cashing in 2,500 rewards points from Capital One. I opted for a Walmart gift card as cashing in for a statement credit would have given less value.
