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. All income and expenses are recorded in Mint and any amounts are rolled over into the next month.

This week my expenses were: $31.71 for the phone bill. Yes it was higher this month than my normal spending because I had some extra charges last month from my trip abroad. I had to buy a data plan while I was away and there were some taxes and fees associated with that. The good thing is my portion of the phone bill will be going down again next month!!!!

I spent $29.34 on food this week and the fridge is now full of things that I don’t seem to want to eat. I do need to use up what I bought before buying more food though, because I do not want to waste money!
