Daily Money Log- It's Been a Year!


September 2012 and September 2013


I have been doing the Daily Money Log and Categorizing them for a year now. If you notice the September 2012, I colored the dates, but a year later, I got tired and just stop that color drama.

I have been religiously listing everything that comes in and everything that goes out for 12 months now, and when I say everything, I mean everything! That penny I found would surely be listed or that .65 mouthwash I bought would be listed,too! It might look tedious, but I got used to it and I am actually enjoying it. 

You might ask me if its worth all the trouble listing everything, I would answer YES without a doubt! This system has help me become more conscious on what I buy. Through this, I would easily know how long products last on me. I became uber-frugal in a good way. I don't buy stuffs for the sake of buying. And the biggest benefit is it is kind of like a countdown to going-home-for-good- moment ! By doing this everyday, it seems like time passes me by so quick, next thing I'll know, I'll be in pinas for good :)

Would I still do this? Yes.. until I get tired of it, but for now, it's all good. I am enjoying it. :)
