Welcome to Money Mondays!

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:

$34.53 on food. This was a very small food trip this week as I will stock up next week. We go on spring break after next week so I will have more time to shop. I got some fruits and vegetables and just basic staples to last through the week.

$110.89 on household items. I did overspend a bit here as I got some personal items and household things I wanted but did not really need. I bought four new lip glosses even though I could have made do with just one. Lip gloss is my go to make up item since I don’t wear lipstick. I do not wear other makeup so my spending in this category is not high at all.

Part of that household spending was $10 for two bouquets of carnations. I enjoy flowers and do not buy them all the time. They usually last about 2 weeks but bring me so much joy. I only started buying them since December and usually just get the one set every month at a total cost of $10.
