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:

$59.31 on various household items including kitty litter. I also paid tuition for summer school and THAT was a fairly large bill as summer is more expensive than long semesters. The good thing was that I could pay the tuition with a credit card and earn 1% of the value even though I did not purchase an actual item.

I redeemed $20.89 from credit card points and opted for the cash option instead of gift cards like I used to in the past. Getting the cash instead allows me to use that to directly pay the credit card and I can then have more available balance to earn more points.
