Keeping track

January 17th, 2005 at 02:14 pm

I'm not very good at keeping track of my money...mostly, it just "leaks" out...I can generally remember/account for the big purchases, but not the $0.75 or less ones...and I know there are plenty of those, and I know they add up...this journal will be my attempt to follow my "out of budget" expenses...maybe just thinking about posting them will keep me from making unnecessary purchases...we'll see...

so far, this month I have managed to bring food from home 9/11 days...so it has been good. I still buy myself a soda and/or fruit piece, so I have been spending about $1 per day (as opposed to the $2-$3 per day I was spending!)...every little step counts, right? (plus, if you see it as a $5/week saved, it isn't quite as small any more!)

    My husband was buying 2-3 cans of soda a day at work. Ouch! I started buy soda cans in bulk at walmart. Generally, I don't like buying soda, but in the end it saved us a lot.

    The journal is a real blessing to me. It helps me stay focused.
