Every Friday I post about my finances for the week in an effort to monitor my income and expenses. I used to post all of the actual figures but I have recently decided to stop doing this.

I will now post SOME of my actual expenses and leave the rest to your imagination.

This week my expenses were:

$26.57 for electricity this month. We are having more days where it is over 100 degrees all day long and then still very hot all night so I have the ceiling fan on continuously. The air conditioning has been coming on sporadically depending on how hot it has been so I am seeing higher than normal utility bills for the next couple of months.

I also paid the rent for the month and the car loan insurance so the biggest part of my expenses for the month are now taken care of.


That is not my apartment but I think it is cool and I love red! I wish I could have a room like this but unfortunately my budget does not always allow for this.

I did not have to pay for summer school for the second session because there was a mix up in the first session and I had been double billed. Then the corrections posted and I did not owe extra for the second session.  I did end up paying over $350 for each of the two sessions but at least that is two more classes knocked off this PhD program.
