Welcome to Money Mondays!

This is the first Money Mondays for the new year..so Happy New Year once again!

(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:

$78.03 on shipping Christmas gifts. Most of this was international shipping so that is why the cost was so high. Luckily this is not an everyday event so I will not be spending so much on shipping for a long time.

$7.58 on lunch with a friend. My friend bought the meals and I got the dessert and drinks so that worked out okay.

This week my financial inflows were:

I discovered a $50 gift card that I had gotten a few months ago. This card was gifted to me and I placed it with some other mail I needed to sort. The items were magazines and things I did not need immediately so I promptly forgot about it. Luckily it is an American Express gift card so I can use it a number of different places. Most likely it will be used at Walmart to get groceries since I don’t really need anything else right now.
