Congratulations

If you have been with this blog from the beginning, you know that I have been tracking my expenses for the past 30 days.  If you have been doing so too, and I hope that you have - congratulations - the 30 days are up and there is no need to keep tracking purchases if you don't want to.

Over the weekend take a few minutes to look over your spending and calculate how much you spent and what you spent it on.  Divide it up into categories and figure out how much of your money was spent in each category.

We will talk more about how you can use this information.  For now, just figure it out and, if you want to, think it over.  Does it surprise you how much or how little you spent overall?  Within different categories?  Did you have a good feel for how much you were spending and where it was going?
