This is my spending check-in for the second week of February. In order to keep track of my weekly expenses, I created an excel file to facilitate the process. The table below is one component of the excel file that tracks my income, expenses, and savings. I’m following a zero-sum budget approach. So if I go over budget in one category, I’ll balance it out by moving money from another.
As seen in the table below, excluding medical costs, I spent $186 in the second week of February. Comparatively, I spent $68 in week 1.
I have approximately $124 remaining for food, $124 remaining for shopping and $12 remaining for transportation expenses.
