Spending Diary

Starting in the month of August I will 'try' and keep a spending diary. I will write down my daily spending on everything from rent to bagels. At the end of each week I will post those spending on my blog.

Hey...I want in on this too. I really need to start managing my money and can't think of a better way to begin than seeing how it's spent.

**Wait a minute...why can't I ever come up with ideas this brilliant??**

LOL

Girl...I'm taking notes.

I have a spreadsheet that I use to keep track of my financial situation. It's a great idea. Learning where you are spending money can show you where you can cut spending. I think everyone should do it

wonderful Idea, this just may help someone as I can see from your comments it already has. Great idea.

Good idea. This will help you see what you can eliminate too at the end of the month and increase your savings.
On a side note, I have an under 30 blog (I'm 22), would you like to trade links?
my blog is here: http://cravingwealth.blogspot.com

Thanks

I'm good at keeping my receipts and writing it all down at the END of the month...but not day to day!
