Welcome to my daily tracking of income and expenses for the month.

Income for the day: $10.00

Expenses for the day: $0.00

Income for the month to date: $40.00

Expenses for the month to date: $788.08

Net effect: -$748.08

I got paid for some of the things I have been writing online over the last few months. While it was only ten dollars every little bit helps. This will be a little part of the snowball that goes off into my debt payoff.

Over the last few months I was able to get the figures straight off Microsoft Money. Now there is something strange going on with the software and some things are being classified as income in one area and the same amount is an expense somewhere else. I am going to have to make a spreadsheet to calculate the figures for this posting from now on.
