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:

$26.17 for some candles and snacks from TJMaxx. I know I was supposed to be on a candle hiatus but I simply could not resist. The Tobacco Flower candle is just SO good.

$137.17 for groceries. I have been really lax about buying food so I needed to get a few items. It seems like my bills get higher even though I purchase the same items all the time.

$23.72, including tip for lunch at Olive Garden. I had to go out of town on business and there isn’t an Olive Garden in my town. Although I ate alone I really enjoyed my meal. I did notice that Olive Garden tends be extremely salty so it is good that there isn’t one I have ready access to.
