I have this red notebook that looks like a wallet when you take a first glance at it but it is actually a notebook, hehe.
I bought this notebook at a department store, it cost about 140 pesos, I am not sure of this because I can't anymore remember the price. This notebook was intended to track all of my expenses and write my monthly budget.
My Monthly Budget
I tried the excel and a budget and expenses app before but it was not a success. Even though I am in front of my computer always for work I still forgot to track it using an excel. On the other hand, a budget and expenses app does not work also. So I decided to buy this notebook and until now I am still using it, this is a success.
On my budget list, I mark check on the amount I spent for me to track if it has been paid or not. On the expenses I sometimes forget it :( , it's just that I am comfortable doing the budget than tracking my expenses. I am planning to buy a bigger notebook next year for me to track my expenses. This notebook is not that big so I just list my budget on that.
Just this early evening my Financial Advisor Vanz Go from AXA message me on Facebook an excel file that tracks my budget and expenses. She made it on her own and it was really good. I will try that this month and see if it work for me.
How about you? What are you using to track your budget and expenses? Just leave a comment :)
