Welcome to Money Mondays! 

This is the last money post for January because February starts tomorrow. I can’t believe we are already into the second month of the new year.

 This is where I track my cash inflows and outflows for the week. I will not post the following two items for personal reasons:


-rent information

Everything else will be listed and is a total of my spending on items for the prior week.

This week my financial outflows were:

$34.95 to renew some blog related items for the next five years.

$91.45 for groceries. This number is actually being shifted into the February budget because I shopped early. I could have waited until February 1st to go shopping but I have a lot of work to complete. I wanted to get it done early so I could do some extra food prepping to have food for work.

$108.82 on some non food items, including two pairs of boots. I got a pair of Ugg-like boots for wearing around the home to go to the mailbox and take out trash. It is very cold here and our snow is not melting. I don’t have a pair of warm shoes I can throw on except for my regular boots.

I also got a pair of wedge booties in grey. All of my boots and work shoes are black and I wanted to try something new. The only shoes I do not have in black are a pair of sneakers! I’m trying to branch out a little more with my clothing choices. The grey shoes should work great because the majority of my work pants are some shade of grey.

$51.62 to fill up my gas tank. With the freezing temperatures I find myself using a LOT of gas. My commute now takes about 45 minutes each way and I have the heat going at some level for all of it. This eats up a lot of gas, especially as my car is on the older side. I was at close to only a quarter tank left, which is my minimum acceptable level. I always fill up when I notice I’m getting close to only a quarter left.

This week my financial inflows were:
