Cash Chronicles: 24 year old, 68k salary, Sydney

The $$$ tally of a (bad) date, a (regrettable) new hobby and too much food.

Welcome to The Footnotes Cash Chronicles.

The aim is to encourage people to start talking about their money in real life. What you buy, when, and how you FEEL seeing it all recorded at the end of the week.

This series allows us to think about money without all the stresses of confronting our own finances.

No one is perfect with money.

But talking about money makes us smarter.

Client manager at a tech company in Sydney 

Rent / weekly expenses:

$255 a week in rent + bills 

Feels: Minus the guitar lessons (which I needed to purchase, as it was a difficult lie to manage) I am ok with this. Obviously Friday night was a blow out, but comparatively to silly season, I feel ok about it. 

We are LOVING your cash chronicles… So keep them coming!
