For many of us, it can truly be a good thing. We’re constantly trying to find ways to keep our finances and spending in line, so we can be better off in the event that we’re out of line. In this article, I’ll cover some of these steps and some of the other things that will give you more control over your finances.
For the first time in my life, I realize that the only way I can achieve financial balance is if I keep track of every little transaction. If I do not, I will pay $100 extra on my next gas bill and that $100 extra will be the only thing I will buy this month. This is not a good thing.
The good news is that you can actually do this. You can see how much money you are spending by how much you are saving. Just by checking your statements and seeing how much you are spending and saving, you will be able to see how much you have to live on each month.
