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: $16.25

Expenses for the month to date: $2424.16

Net effect: -$2407.91

Since the last posting I paid $131 in legal fees for something I needed to take care of and got $3.23 from Lending Club as a loan repayment.

I am having a really hard time with tracking the money I am spending here since I am operating on a cash basis in a foreign country. I am having to go back and convert what I spend and since most times I do not get receipts it is difficult but I am hanging in there.

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