I got my cashbook back out for the 1st of the year, and have diligently been tracking every penny spent. Let me tell you, it is no pretty! It is only the 9th and I am already appalled at the amount of money we have been spending......But I am confident that seeing this in writing will help curb the spending. I know for sure it has already helped with the amount I spend on pop everyday, because I really don't want to write it down everyday, so I have been taking cans from home (.31 per can) a lot more, instead of hitting the vending machine at work (.75 per can/$1.35 per bottle).
