Welcome to Money Mondays!
This is where I track my cash inflows and outflows for the week. I will not post the following two items for personal reasons:
Everything else will be listed and is a total of my spending on items for the prior week.

This week, I had a few other expenses that I want to highlight. Firstly, I paid $112.45 for internet and cable. While this may seem like a large expense, it’s something that I prioritize as I rely heavily on the internet for work and personal use, and cable is a form of entertainment for me. However, I do make an effort to review my internet and cable bill every few months to see if there are any promotions or deals available that could help me save some money.
Next up is food, which is always a necessary expense. I spent $96.86 on food this week, which includes dining out, takeout, and groceries. While it’s easy to overspend on food, especially when dining out or ordering takeout, I try to balance it by cooking meals at home more often and limiting my spending on non-essential food items like snacks or drinks.
Finally, I spent $8.47 on medicine this week. While it’s not a huge expense, it’s a reminder that unexpected expenses can arise at any time, and it’s important to have some financial cushion to cover them.
Overall, this week’s expenses were relatively in line with my budget, and I didn’t have any unexpected expenses that threw me off track. By tracking my expenses and being mindful of my spending, I’m able to stay within my budget and feel more in control of my finances.
