Old School Budget Tracking
Emily
Have you ever taken a look at your credit card bill at the end of the month or an empty checking account and wondered “what did I spend all my money on!?” or “how did this bill get so high!?” I definitely do this, and with a little frustration, I pay the bill and start all over again. I tell myself “my bill will be lower this month” or “I’ll stash more in my savings account”.
