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:

Gift card: a $20 gift card that I got from redeeming points earned from one of my credit cards.

This week my expenses were:

Food: $8.97 over three days for food at work. I ended up staying at the office longer than I had planned due to unexpected meetings cropping up…and regular meetings going past their time.

Car: $4 to wash the car as it gets VERY dusty around here and the birds LOVE to leave me little presents on an almost daily basis.
