- Make more money.
- Control my spending.
Where to start?
Spending is the easiest and fastest thing for me to change. Or is it? To be honest I don't know how I spend my money most of the time. When I really think about it it's no wonder I'm always broke. I don't manage my money so much as I spend until it's gone. I can probably budget for my big, fixed expenses, but until I really understand how I spend the rest of my money how can I budget appropriately?
What I've decided to do is to track my spending over the next two weeks. I have a small pocket notebook that I plan to carry with me all the time. If I spend a cent I'll record it. This will hopefully understand where I'm spending money.
