Welcome to Money Mondays!

(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)

I used to post my financial inflows and outflows on Fridays in the past but I decided to move this to Mondays instead. I normally go grocery shopping on Sundays after church. I will now post the last week’s worth of financial inflows and outflows on Monday so that I can include the weekend spending as well.

This week my financial outflows were:

$7 for a car inspection so that I could get my car registered. I think that the inspections used to be a lot more…for some reason $$13.50 is stuck in my mind. In any case I needed to get this so that I could get my car registration taken care of.

$72.01 for the actual car registration for one year. Now I don’t need to worry about this again for another year. The money came out of the Car Fund which is a sub account in my budget. I place a small amount into that account on a monthly basis and it takes care of the things we don’t think of like inspections and registrations!


By the way, this is NOT my car…it is my dream car for after I graduate and get a job. #visualize #makeitreal.

$61.98 to order some things for a friend…for which I got reimbursed. This is a situation where I have a couple of friends who do not trust themselves to use credit cards. They have taken to giving me cash for items they wish to order online and then I place the order. This is a win for me because I get to earn the credit card cash back effectively for free, since I don’t spend any of my own money.

This week my financial inflows were:

$0.25 which I found on the ground and $10 from credit card redemptions. As always, I do not expect to get cash inflows except for my salary and I only get paid once a month.
