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 income was in the form of:

  • Salary: as a graduate instructor
  • Lending club: I pulled in a small amount from my loan repayments

My expenses were:

  • Rent: My new lease started and it is slightly lower than the old one so I will be saving about $20 on rent
  • Electricity: My electric bill was MUCH higher than expected.

I am doing a new set of rollover tracking in Mint to see what will happen now that I have a slightly lower rent payment. I will continue to roll all the categories over until December and then I will reset in January to track the full cash flow for 2014.
