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:

$199.00 to renew a professional membership. This is an annual subscription for a group that is beneficial to my career. This was actually got this free as a grad student because there was funding to pay for a membership.

My splurge for the month was $119.56 on 6 candles from Bath and Body Works. Earlier in the year I decided to go on a candle no buy until the semi annual sale. This is because the sale happens in July (or is it June?) and I had so many candles in the closet waiting to be burned. Because of the quarantine I’ve been burning candles like a crazy person! My stash was whittled down to less than half and I wanted some new ones.

I haven’t really been spending money because I’ve been in the house the entire month. I did one large trip for groceries at the start of the month and I’ve just been making sure to use everything up.

One good thing about the quarantine is that I’ve actually been using up items in the fridge and pantry instead of letting them go to waste.
