Here is the breakdown of my income and expenses for the first week of January 2012.
- Income to date: $232.16
- Expenses to date: 928.87
- Cash flow to date: -$696.71
I received $7.93 from my Lending Club investment this week and also got $220 in private advertising.
I paid $65 on the shared cell phone bill, even though I was told I did not have to pay anything since I have not been working. I still want to contribute to the bills while I can so I reduced the amount that I normally pay.
I spent $8.60 on household items which included the purchase of a large desk calendar for the current year. I keep it tacked on the wall because I do not have a desk that is wide enough for it and it is also easier to see from all around the room that way.
I spent $46.91 on food for the week. The (not so) funny thing was that I bought eggs and made sure to carefully check each one for cracks. I found two that were damaged and I replaced them so that I would have a perfect set of eggs. I had a few things in my hand and when I got into the house the bag with the eggs fell to the ground. When I opened carton I saw that TWO of my eggs were broken. I was a little upset by that but hey it is just two eggs right?
I am still working on a few things and hope to see my situation improve quite soon.
Sorry about the eggs 🙁 I find that when I grocery shop late thursday night, the store puts a lot of fresh produce on sale to make room for new produce for the weekend crowd. You can find some great deals.
I broke the eggs when I got home…they were not broken in the store. I just thought it was interesting because I found and replaced TWO broken ones in the store and then got home and broke TWO.
I hate it when you get broken eggs. It looks like you are hanging in there well. Good luck in the new year!
Thank God I do not eat eggs, I had broken every one on the way from the store. 🙂
