Welcome to  tracking of income and expenses for the month. Please note that I get paid on the last day of the month so my cash flow net effect will usually be negative until the last day of the month.

This does not mean that I am adding to my debt, it just means that the money coming in is less than the money going out because bills are due starting on the first but I don’t get paid until the last day.

Income for the month to date: $66.78

Expenses for the month to date: $1828.73

Net effect: -$1761.95

Income for the month thus far includes the previously mentioned ad income plus $43 from private ad sales on this blog. I did not get any adsense last month because I just barely missed the minimum that you need to get paid. This means that my adsense for this month will be slightly bigger because it will include last month’s earnings so I am eagerly looking forward to that at the end of the month.

I have spent $69.67 on groceries for the month so I am about halfway through the grocery budget. I will be going out of town this weekend so I will have to figure a hefty gas bill this month. I do not think that I will go over the budget for the month but it will be very close since I have to drive a lot to visit a friend for her graduation.

I will see you guys and gals later as I continue my journey to save money and become debt free!!!!
