January 2018 Expenses and Earnings

Time for another spending/earnings report! My net income in January 2018 was $3656.26. My paychecks are always a little higher in November, December and January because we get lots of overtime around Christmas. I’m guilty of a little bit of lifestyle inflation in January as a result of this. I treated myself to some stuff from Amazon, and downloaded plenty of music on iTunes. Fortunately, I’ve finally downloaded all the songs that I really wanted and I probably won’t buy many more, if any. I also had to buy new earbuds for my ipod because the old ones finally stopped working, two years after I bought them. It looks like I spent more than last month on eating out and using the vending machine at work. I’m not sure why that is. Lifestyle inflation again? Probably. My local Subway now closes at the same time I get off work, so I will no longer be able to go there on Thursdays (the last day of my work week ) as I had been doing. What I really need to do is find some healthy, tasty recipes that I can make and take to work with me. I usually go out at lunch time because the food I put in my lunch bag is so boring! So here is the breakdown of my expenses:

Rent:  $752.34
Cell Phone:  $22.60
Internet:  $102.25
Service charges:  $4.95
Netflix:  $8.99

Baby shower gift: $45.15

Vending Machine:   $42.20
Other food & Misc. expenses:  $359.08
