July 31, 2014: Track Your Expenses
If I could advise you to do just one thing to help your finances before the start of next month, this would be it…
If there’s one thing that can make a HUGE difference in how you save money, it’s this: TRACK YOUR EXPENSES.
As this month comes to a close, purpose to start tracking where you spend your money each day next month. And it doesn’t have to be complicated – find a system that works with you and stick with it!
Whether it’s with paper and pencil, throwing receipts into an envelope or scanning them into a mobile app, the important thing is that you JUST DO IT! After all, you can’t know how to start saving money until you know where your money is being spent each month!
