Counting The Pennies!

This Sparked Me!

Record every penny you spend, whether it be using cash or card.

This'll highlight to you how much, if any, you throw away each month.

It's so easy to just buy the odd coffee but before you know it you've blown a lot on something you may not have had spare cash for

I track every penny& since then I've made massive savings. It's worth it as it's so easy to forget what your cash went on

    Yep, this is one of my goals too. One day at a time...

    I do the best with my money when I track every penny of my cash. It makes me more accountable when I have to write it down. Also, when I look back at the month, it helps me identify if there is something that I could have done differently or if I need to create a new category in the budget.
