Welcome to tracking of income and expenses for the month. Please note that I get paid on the last day of the month so my cash flow net effect will usually be negative until the last day of the month.

This does not mean that I am adding to my debt, it just means that the money coming in is less than the money going out because bills are due starting on the first but I don’t get paid until the last day.

So again to clarify (since I get so many questions), this shows the cash FLOW for the month. On Day 2 of every month I will have a negative FLOW because I have paid rent etc so money has LEFT my checking account. I have not had any money come in on Day 2 of the current month since I got paid on day 27 or 30 or 31 of the previous month so that income is counted for LAST month.

twentyIncome for the month to date: $0.00

Expenses for the month to date: $765.23

Net effect: -$765.23

Since the last posting I have paid rent and also bought some kitty litter so that Dinero could have three litter boxes to work with as I will be away from home for four days.

I bought lunch at Taco Bell because I was being lazy and did not prepare a bag lunch from home yesterday. I am driving out of town to see some friends (and to PAR-TAAAAAAAY) so I will need to get gas as well as I am currently on less than a quarter tank since I only bought gas ONCE for the whole of last month.

I will see you guys and gals later as I continue my journey to save money and become debt free!!!!
