While I was debating how I should start this blog, I started keeping track of where my money was going each day.
I have a little agenda type-book, most likely from the dollar store, that I carry around and write down every transaction in. I usually keep the receipt- but sometimes I forget to ask for it.
First week of tracking down. Only spent $41.25. That’s not too bad!
During the work week, my goal is not to spend more than $20 on food or snacks or anything while I’m at work. I was lucky to receive a number of Starbucks gift cards for Christmas and my birthday, I’m still going to count it as real money. This way I won’t go to Starbucks every day.
I also forgot that I had a gift card for the LCBO, so I used real money, and bought two bottles of wine instead of one, because I know my mom likes that one as well.
The weekend, is a “different” budget. Haven’t really gotten to working that part out- that’s where my real budget will come in with the different spending categories… but more on that at a later time.
Overall, I’m okay with how I spent my money this week.
Let’s hope it always feels and is this easy.
