Where Does My Money Go?

July 6th, 2007 at 06:10 pm

My challenge for the month of July is to truly keep an honest account of where my money goes. I've been keeping the reciepts and plan to open an excel spreadsheet to keep a running tab. Then I found this article

Spending your money in accordance with your priorities helps you lead a more authentic life. You will feel less inner conflict when your money reflects who you truly are and what you value on the inside

Today was an intresting day. I spent $17 on a CD that I dont like. UGH. I should have listend to it on Amazon first...I'll put it up on Half.com. I also spent $14 at the post office mailing letters to creditors, book to my dad, other stuff friends (I had to buy the bubble envelopes). And $35 on gas. The thing with gas is that if I drove around looking for cheaper gas, doesn't that defeat the purpose?

    I made my kids eat at Chilis for lunch today, wasting plenty of $$$ on food they did'nt want. A quick trip to McDonalds would have been better. DUMB!

    I'm with you both! Bad service for a bad price at dinner last night. Frown

    Good article - that's my money mantra. most of us can't have it all so we have to prioritize. But it puts into words well what I have tried to say in my blog before.

    I liked the article, when I reviewd my spending habits dining out was my downfall
