Cash Chronicles: 25 year old, Lawyer, Mid Silly Season

“When it comes to money, I am not exactly the most thrifty of individuals”

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.

I am a lawyer at a firm which specialises in insurance


$73,000 (including super)

Rent / living situation: 

I pay $190 per week in rent 

Here’s my spending:

Maybe a little extravagant on the food spending today.





This is a massive blow out. It was meant to be a quiet drink – aka: $20 max. 



It’s not like this every week, thank god. But damn. Have to go take a long hard look in the mirror. I think I might need to limit myself myself to one night out a week. 


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