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:

$116.66 for the internet and cable bill. Once my contract here is up next year I will move to the internet only plan. I took the double plan because it was cheaper as a bundle to get higher internet speeds than internet only. This is because of the way the items were packaged for new residents. Next year I will not have that option so I will switch to the internet only. I do not really watch live tv and only really watched it now because I have cable. I prefer to use streaming services and watch at my leisure…skipping commercials or pausing the show as needed.

$10 towards charitable donations to my school’s scholarship fund. I’ve actually been donating $10 from every paycheck, for a total of $20 per month. I will cut back to $10 per month because I am really trying to save towards another goal.

$46.58 to fill up my car’s tank. Gas is a lot more expensive here than in my last state. I am still averaging about one fill up per month so it is not so bad. The budget did not have to be adjusted because of the higher gas prices either.
