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 $48.73 this week on household items which I ended up ordering online. I used a combination of MyPoints where I earn points for using that site as a hub to go my destination of Drugstore.com where I also earn cash back on every purchase that I make. I used my rewards credit card which gives me a percentage back on what I spend so over time it will add up to rewards in three different areas.
I always make sure to not order a batch of items unless I have at least $25 worth of items in the cart because you get free shipping on orders over that amount. I ended up getting things like conditioner, lotion and some vitamins so it was things that I really use and was running out of in the bathroom.
