Welcome to my daily tracking of income and expenses for the month.
Income for the month to date: $213.46
Expenses for the month to date: $1870.01
Net effect: -$1656.55
I paid the cable and spent an additional $27.36 on food for the month, which includes snacks. I really need to cut down on the junk food because I bought a bag of cheesy poufs (yum yum) and a package of sugar cookies. Both of these, especially the sugar cookies, are really bad for my health.
Oh but they taste sooooooooooo good.
I did get my usual helping of fruits for the week so I have not been totally bad with my food choices, although I could do a lot better. I take one fruit to work with me every day and have that as my snack during the day. I alternate days with grapes,Ã‚ an apple or a banana and I get lots of vegetables at dinner because my mother has been cooking since she came to take care of me after my surgery . She has been a lifesaver especially since I was so weak and tired the first few days after getting out of the hospital.
Even with buying junk food I am still well within the food budget for the month and I might even come in under budget this month if things go as planned.
Every time I think there is no one who could possibly read these little posts about how I spend my money and decide to stop I always get pleasantly surprised by an email from a reader. I actually got listed in a post by Tight Fisted Mister who wrote about Bloggers Who Disclose Their Income a few days ago.
I will see you guys and gals later as I continue my journey to save money and become debt free!!!!
Bahh everything is bad for your health these days. Today a report was released by some danish folk, I do believe, and they said that vitamin A and B6 I think actually interfered with your body’s natural amounts and actually shortened your lifespan.
@ Save Money:
Well then I guess I am going to die young because I take a Centrum every day….chock full of vitamin A and B!!!!! 🙂
Even too much water can make you gain weight if you don’t sweat it out. I am sure there is plenty of us out there who enjoys reading this. I am always curious as to that day when bam! all of sudden your income rockets and narrows the gap between your income and expenses.
Water weight does not count for me because you can get rid of that easily…but fat is harder to burn off.
I too am waiting for the day when that financial happiness is mine….but for now all I can do is snowflake and snowball payments and blog about it and see the gap slowly decrease as my credit card debt gets smaller.
