Week 23 – Debt & Expense Update (credit card #2 under $1000!)

Woo hoo!

Credit card #2 is under $1000! Only JUST. But I’m taking it as a win! When I started this blog that card was maxed at $5k.

This week I did have a HUGE expense – I paid to have my household items currently stored interstate to be delivered to my parents home. It cost $1870 for the delivery and $140 for the remaining storage for September. While this was a big outlay, it means I will no longer be paying $180 per month like I have for the past almost 2 years.

Now my committed expenses are as follows:

$280  per month – rent

$360 per month – travel

$178 per month –  loan

$25 per month –  internet

$30 per month – phone

$44 per month – gym

$29 per month – loan insurance

 

My expenses this week looked like this:

Monday: $25.00 groceries, $3.90 coffee

Tuesday: $3.10 personal care, $100 concert ticket, $40.00 put on travel card

Wednesday: $8.95 earrings, $3.95 snack, $4.00 groceries

Thursday: $12.00 personal care, $18.00 drinks, $100 put on travel card, $23.90 gym fees, $2010.00 storage and removal fee

Friday: $3.90 coffee

Saturday: $30 drinks, $40 sports nutrition bars, $22 dinner

Sunday – $12.00 second hand book, $8.00 coffee

Total spend for Week 23: $2, 468.70
