What I spent in the week I was looking for love

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.


Alex Turnbell


I work as a bottom feeder at a news organisation in their digital copywriting team

Rent / living situation: 

I pay $230 per week in rent

Here’s my spending:

Considering I was out five of seven nights this week and wasn’t buying dinner I assumed that my grand total would be a lot smaller. It’s really embarrassing seeing how much money I have spend on nails, hair and things that I put on my face. Also – my diet could use with some work.

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