Track your expenses

"Where did all my money go?" Ever asked yourself that question? It happens to the best of us and usually occurs when we're not monitoring our coins.

Today's challenge is to track your expenses.  Try not to change your spending habits today. Instead, just simply monitor what you're spending your money on, and write it down. Then pay attention to any patterns or themes. If you have a budget in place, did your expenses align with your budgeting goals? If you don't have a budget, today's list of expenses could be a good way to begin to evaluate where your money is spent for the purpose of creating a budget.

This exercise is particularly useful if you track your expenses for a few days or longer.
