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 spent $12.58 when a few of us went to celebrate with a friend who successfully defended his dissertation. This officially brought my ‘fun’ allocation for the month down to a smaller amount but it was for a good cause and we are almost a the end of the month. My ‘fun’ allocation for the month is $20 but I do not plan on doing anything else until next month so I can roll over the balance to the next budget.

I spent $16.74 on fruits and vegetables from a new supermarket. I think I will be getting those items from this store now because they seem to be a better quality than what I get from the place where I normally shop.
