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:

$171.30 for groceries and Christmas decor. Last Christmas I did not have a tree as I got rid of all my decor items when I moved for the new job. I did not receive my official new salary until January and did not want to use my meager savings on frivolous items.

This year I did not think about not getting a tree since I was not really in the spirit. I spoke to my dad and a few friends and then decided to get Christmas decor to brighten my spirits. I snagged a 6.5 foot tree for $59.00. It is pre lit so that will save me some time. There was a sale on decorations so I got a small bag of balls and some garland to add to the tree.

This week my financial inflows were:

$37.46 from redeeming credit card points.
