Notes:

1. January 5 is obviously pay day. Money goes in, money goes out. Cash for savings is not included in this list.

2. Honestly most of these expenses are mine. See previous post. I have no self-control at work plus I get really hungry & have the after lunch munchies. Need to be more prepared next week!

3. My budget for buying food during the work week is $30. All in all, I spent $62.15! Epic Fail!
