Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s what I was up to.
How I Earned Money This Week
One of my new clients paid for their first monthly fee.
We’ve had three different Airbnb guests this week and into the weekend.
How I Spent Money This Week
We spent a lot of money over the weekend having fun with Dan’s sister and childhood friend. So we’ve been reigning it in this week in order to stay within budget for the rest of the month. We bought groceries for the week on Sunday and I bought a refill of our Branch Basics non-toxic cleaning supplies.
The credit card on our EZpass account expired and we forgot to update it before our trip to and from New York City in early July. We are still paying for that sin by receiving toll bills in the mail over… and over… and over. So we’ve paid a couple tolls and replenished our EZpass account. Don’t forget to keep your EZpass information up to date, especially when you get a new car or a new credit card!
We’re going to Maine in two weeks to celebrate my birthday (yay!). We adjusted our trip so that we’re staying in Portland for two nights and then Bar Harbor for two nights. We booked our Bar Harbor hotel yesterday and altered our Portland Airbnb.
What I’m Writing
This week, I wrote about how you can improve your financial confidence.
