Bugeting the Adventures of Spending and Saving - Intro @ Tuesday, June 12, 2012
So my categories would be:
- Home Deco- Beauty
But I don't always spend on all categories, so sometimes I don't include them. For other it would include rent, bills, health, pets, car related expenses, house maintenance (cleaner/gardener/chef), gifts and nights out.
$76.05 in food ($23.55 on take away),
$40 on hobbies, ($22 at an art store, $18 on picture frames)
$140 on clothing/accessories, (all 4 items where on sale 50%+, one was an AH coat)
$25 in home deco, (typo, more picture frames + printing photos)
$25 on necessary things (e.g. postage) and
$64 in beauty (dry/shampoo etc. (in bulk), nail polish base, np remover).
And in this I haven't included transport costs, which is about $30 a week.
1. Keep record of your spending
2. Identify spending habits & where your money's going.
3. Set goals, and do try to achieve them
I've googled some tips and customized them and added my own to help save, and spend less or at least spend wiser.
Part 1 - Food
Part 2 - Fashion & Beauty
Part 3 - Entertainment
Part 4 - Gifts
It looks better on a bk bg, where you can see the white boarders...

I have a Nokia and it came with Expenses Manager, so I use that.
