I've finally decided that I need to live following a budget.  I realize that it isn't really realistic to spend as much money as I do on things that I don't really need.  For the next 3 months I've decided that I'm going to write down everything I spend and live on a cash budget (when possible) to see how much money I can save. 

I found a great tool online that helps keep track of expenses.  You can find it here DOLLAR TIMES and a bunch of other budget forms. 

How do you guys keep track of things?  Do you have a system that works for you?  What is the one tip that you could give to someone who wants to save a few extra dollars?


  1. good luck. i've been meaning to start this for a while now. lol. the blog outfit post aren't helping. thanks for another amazing post love. please swing by to see pics of my latest celebrity trend report and my new favorite wedges. xoxo

  2. good luck!! From time to time when I feel like my spending is snowballing out of control, keeping a log is the only way to bring back that sense of control. I've been doing it on and off for years and I really think it helps. The whole cash basis thing is great too, it's easier to keep track of paper money than digital money.
