Here’s a screen shot of Kay’s expenses from last week:
Overall, I should have spent wiser. I ended the week with 81 cents, but was unable to save money for the future.
This week I have to pay rent on my storage unit—$45. That means that for the entire week I have $30 to live off of.
Also, I came across this website that evaluates charities. It’s called charitynavigator.org. This site analyses charities based on their organizational efficiency and organizational capacity, both of which are broken down into various components. This is a great way to not only find places to volunteer, but find places that are truly doing they most they can to achieve their mission.
It’s great to want to give back—but it’s even better when you know that your gift is being used effectively.
