Every Friday I post on my weekly income and expenses in an effort to keep on track of my budget for the month. By breaking down my transactions on a weekly basis I can see where my money is going and see if I am going to be able to stay under my total budget for the month.
I got on a new shared phone plan and my part of the bill this month was only $25. I think I might be paying about $40 on the bill every month when it finally settles..but that is for unlimited minutes, unlimited data and unlimited messages so that is actually a great deal for me.
I paid rent and electricity and also the car loan and the insurance. Most of my bills come early in the month so there is a big outflow right after I get paid on the first. I hate to see the money leave in such a big chunk but luckily I have my accounts set up so that cash can flow freely at every week without running my checking account into overdraft.
