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:

$47.15 on food for the week. I went to a store that is slightly more expensive than my regular store but has better quality produce. On this shopping trip I bought 4 packets of fish which contain two filets each. I usually eat one whole filet with a salad for a meal, so I can get 8 meals out of this. If I add more sides then I can cut the filets in half and have up to 16 meals.

This week my financial inflows were:

I redeemed $11.53 on one of my credit cards for a statement credit. Actually it is a system where the points credit back specific purchases. So I was only able to use the points for specific items and did not have enough for others. I don’t mind this but will not use this card very much since I am not a fan of this rewards system.

A $6.00 check came in for a product that I was refunded for. It was for a food item I bought and it had a defect. I emailed the manufacturer and they sent me a check to cover the purchase.
