Do you track your money leakage regularly? I think many people are leaking cash in this or that way without realizing its whereabout. But we get down to make a list of our daily expenses, we will find out the problems easily. But to be honest, I never know how much I spend each month. It's very bad habit. small amount of money gathers big in time, big enough to buy something we long for.

I used to do this all the time, and I recently started to do this again. It's a great way to keep track of where your money goes, and it also makes it much easier to make a budget, so I really do recommend it!

Last year my husband and I decided to keep track of the money we spent in one month, so we saved all the receipts and wrote everything down. We were shocked to see the result and it made us realize how much money we spend on unneccesary or unhealthy things. We both love candy, cakes and other sweet things, but I never realized how much money we actually spend on those things. It was a good idea to write everything down, because we learned something from the experience. We still spend too much money, but at least we are aware of the problem. It will be a challenge to change our habits, but it would be nice to be able to save up more money each month.
