Your money is gone

Sometimes I can't believe that my money remains less than I expect. I thought my money was still bigger in amount as I knew I didn't buy many things. It is always hard to check back on what I spent my money on. What about you, are you sometimes confused on how your money was spent on? Did you also try to figure out what you already bought?

I try to budget my spending. I usually bring just enough money and a list of things to buy when I go shopping. This prevents me from becoming a "compulsive shopper". Why do you think store have nice displays?

I was also worried about my spendings so I do use some apps in smartphone to keep track of my spendings. It really helps a lot just try it out.

Sometimes it's a good idea to write down everything you spend for a few days. It can be surprising where it goes to.

Yes. When we write it down it is true that we have spent that much.

I regularly monitor my savings and expenses. In fact, I even keep a ledger for that.

Especially when the amount is large, it is difficult to trace where it's gone.

I maintain an account of the money spent on different things. So no problem at all.
