Welcome to Money Mondays!

(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)

 I used to post my financial inflows and outflows on Fridays in the past but I decided to move this to Mondays instead. Normally I go grocery shopping on Sundays after church. Now I will post the last week’s worth of financial inflows and outflows on Monday so that I can include the weekend spending as well.

This week my financial outflows were:

$52.15 for electricity. I don’t have a number for the same period last time. I moved here on the 21st of November so my first electric bill was not until December. It has been extremely cold recently, even though it has not snowed yet.

This week my financial inflows were:

$60.85 as a Big Fat Check from Rakuten. This check was from rebates for items I have purchased as regular items for the last few months. I do the bulk of my grocery shopping online via Walmart’s website. I use Rakuten with every purchase and earn a few cents here and there. At the end of the day all those rebates and cash back items add up.
