What I Spend in a Week

This fall semester all of my classes are online and because of this I have been living at home. And since the beginning of April I have been working between 32-36 hours a week at a grocery. During this time I have been making a more conscious effort to limit my spending and save as much money as possibly. And I have being tracking my spending more frequently because of a recent social media trend.

During the beginning of the year, many influencers on Youtube, TikTok, and Instagram, were sharing what they spend in a week. I found this trend extremely interesting because it showcased how different people chose to spend their money. So I thought it would be interesting to showcase how I, a fulltime college student working 32-36 hours a week, chose to spend my money.

In total I spent $771.61, which is higher than I thought it would be. I would consider this week’s spending to be extremely abnormal because I had to buy new tires for my car. If it weren’t for my purchase at Discount Tires, I would have likely spent less than $150, which is what I typically spend in a week.

    Hey this post was super insightful for my own spending habits, and it reminded me how I need to be more conscious about my budget because I am trying to save up money for an apartment after college.

    I find this so interesting to see what other people spend in a week. I usually try to keep track of what I spend, and this reassures me that I’m not the only one that buys things I do not need at all hahaha
