Welcome to How I Save Money and tracking of income and expenses for the month.

Income for the month to date: $53.07

Expenses for the month to date: $1677.97

Net effect: -$1624.90

This month the figures do not look so bad for the middle of the month. I have gotten a little bit more money from interest from my ING accounts and from some sponsorship for the blog.

This is much needed money as my expenses for the month are much higher since mother has been sick and staying with me.

I have done four loads of laundry for the month thus far…but I saved money on them because I have not used the dryer. I have been air drying my clothes using a wooden rack that I got at WalMart for about $10.00. The rack paid for itself within the first two months because I was able to save money by getting my clothes dry inside my apartment instead of using the dryer in the laundry.

I am still trying to make some extra money so that I can keep up to date with all the bills and not have to struggle.

I will see you guys and gals later as I continue my journey to save money and become debt free!!!!
