Do you have a notebook that records everyday expenses? if no, are you clear how much you spent today and on which? today I went nowhere but stayed at home. So there is little expense except telephone bill. I made some calls. Yet, I made very small amount of money online. The experience is quite interesting. It tests my patience and proves that I am too earger to wait for a bigger income. With the same amount of seed money, the result can be extremely different. for those who are apt at investing, they can make ten times or twenty times than I make in a single day. Today is the second day I try this scheme. And I am sure that there is a long way to go. I need to fill myself with professional knowledge and more observation. Anyway, I made a little money eighteen times than that of bank interest.

Yep!Last year I haven't done this but now that we have a baby I always make sure that we never go beyond our daily budget.I always take down our daily expenses so that we will be reminded of our budget for the month.Earning and saving money is harder than spending it.I guess everyone will agree.Sometimes it's uncontrollable that's why it's a good thing to have list of expenses.Another good way on how to save money is listing the daily needs and choosing the most important things that need to be bought or paid in that way we can set limitation in our expenses.

thank you. I am not trying to save money actually. I just want to manage money more reasonably so that I can use it meaningly.

i stayed at home today, and didn't spend money. it's frozen outside, not necessary, i'll never get out of the door. i don't have a notebook to record expenses, but my bf downloaded a software to do this. he asked me to record together, i said no. too troublesome for me. anyway, he takes notes everyday,so we know how much money we spent every month. that's true, to write down the details of expenses can save money. he started doing that a few months ago, now we're trying to control the money we spent, which we wouldn't do before. btw,do you buy stock for investion?

I also did nothing today, and because of that, I spent $0.00. Even if you counted food I would have only spent food stamps, haha. Although I don't know how much the food would have costed, lol.
