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: $11.32

Expenses for the month to date: $2027.51

Net effect: -$2016.19

Since the last posting I got $3.96 from Lending Club loans that have been repaid. I must say that the little Lending Club experiment has been going well and the money is slowly but surely trickling in.

I ‘paid’ $70 for my car insurance. I put the word in quotation marks because I paid the full premium up front and this is only the budgeted amount which is being paid towards the credit card.  I also spent $51.01 on household items including cold medicine to battle this cold I have been dealing with.

I used a $1 coupon on my groceries this week so yippee there goes one dollar towards savings.

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