The credit card debt has gone up since I paid part of my sister’s tuition on my credit card. Just like last month, my dad sent me $400 to use on my sister. I put $300 on her tuition then used the other $100 to pay for her groceries. She gets $20 per week to spend on food at the grocery store. She’s been very good about not going over that and getting quite a good variety of food to eat. I also give her $10/week for bus money, usually from cash I have on hand. This comes out of my “miscellaneous” budget.

Here is the graphical form for those of you who like pretty pictures:
