I have decided to post my weekly spending for the previous week on Fridays so you know how my cash has been flowing for the week. 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: $514.80

Expenses for the month to date: $2615.03

Net effect: -$2100.23

Since the last posting I spent $48.38 on food for the week and that was mostly some high end Feta cheese, cappucino mix and fruits. One bag of cherries came in at $5.88 and I got two so there went $10 right of the bat. I love cherries and make about three meals from one bag of cherries but they sure are expensive!

I received $3.27 from Prosper and got $6.55 from Lending Club. The only thing I have left to do is to get gas to fill up the tank on Saturday so I can start the next month with a full tank. I will be getting paid later today and have a few snowflake payments going out on Saturday as well but this month will be  another month where I come out in the black despite all the little expenses here and there.

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