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:

$29.94 for the phone bill. I’m not sure how the others miscalculated this month as my bill is usually $32 flat. This is cool though because it means more of my money gets to stay in my account. Every cent helps!

$4.67 on three sports bras from JC Penney. Men just don’t understand how expensive bras are! The total cost was $117.97 but I had a $10 reward that expired this month and also had $103.30 from the Ebates gift card I redeemed earlier this year. I used the Ebates link for this purchase and will earn 6% on my $4.67.

This week my financial inflows were:

$0 as I don’t get paid this month. I will not get paid until September as I opted for the 9 month paycheck. This means I got paid fewer times but the checks were larger than those who got paid year round.

$34.94 from redeeming credit card points. I got a full $31.76 from the direct points and then an additional 10% for depositing to my savings account.
