Since recently moving to a new place I’ve let go of some of my financial budgeting. Basically, before I was able to do easily stay away from temptations (mostly going out with friends), and the move created an environment that tempts me more and more.
I cannot stand it that I’ve done what I’ve done and I have to get things back in order. It all starts with tracking my expenses on a day by day basis to establish how I must adjust my budget to my new environment. On a weekly basis I will post the review of all expenses and then create a final end of month expense review. Hopefully at this time I can look back and see exactly where I have fix things. Most certainly that would be the going out portion, but it can be surprising what expenses you will find when you take a closer look.
Last time I did this exercise, I found out my largest expenditure was Target of all places.
