With that being said, there are plenty of tools at your finger tips to help you track your expenses.
- Mint.com: It allows you to add accounts from several different banks, allowing you to see at-a-glance what your net worth is and allows you to make your very own budgets! Best part: they send me emails (you can also opt in for text messages) when I'm close to over spending a particular budget, when my credit card payment is due and even gives me a weekly recap of my spending.
- Excel or spread sheet: Writing everything down by hand can be helpful too! Check out this spread sheet from Luc Latulippe that can help you track where you spend your money.
- Note book or file: I'm a huge fan of making lists, cute lists like these ones from Knock Knock.
