Worksheet _ Monthly Expense Record_ On this worksheet you will record all your spending for the month in the appropriate categories. At the end of the month, this will give you an exact amount of money that you spend in all categories.
Consider putting yourself back on cash. If you think you shop impulsively because it is so easy to use plastic, try to give yourself a cash allowance every week. You may go over the allowance, but you will have to go to some effort to replenish it. This can be a great way to get a handle on spending.
