My questions:
Is this all totally misguided?.......
I'm not actually leaving enough to pay for my weekly expenses when I have them. Does this make sense?

First - welcome.
Second- no - not misguided, you seem right on with your attitude. Just putting it out there is a HUGE step.
Third - How comfortable are you with putting your "monthly expenses" out here for everyone to see? You already mentioned your rent (which is my net pay for a month- wow!) But if you post ALL of your expenses- start with a budget for what you actually spend each month and on what, many of the board members will give you places to cut back a bit and grow the snowball and savings, just by making a few changes....
