An EASY Way To Track Your Spending
Lesson 17 Chapter 1 Module 4
Tracking your spending is one of the hardest parts of budgeting (or sticking to your budget). I totally get it! I hate tracking my spending too.
I understand it can be tedious at times when tracking your spending. It’s hard to write down every penny you spend, so I recommend you use technology to help you with this task.
There are many free websites and apps that help you with financial tracking. For example, websites like PersonalCapital give you the ability to track your spending almost instantly.
It takes only a few minutes to set it up in the beginning (depending on how many bank accounts and credit cards you have), but once you set it up you can forget it.
This website automatically tracks your spending by linking your credit cards and bank accounts. Every transaction is loaded to your Personal Capital account, and you can see all of your finances in one place. This makes financial tracking super easy.
You can also track your spending by logging into your bank or credit card website. The only disadvantage of using technology is you have to manually enter any transactions where you used cash.
As a bonus, if you link at least one investment account (containing a balance of more than $1,000 within 30 days of registering) to Personal Capital, you and I will get $50! So that’s FREE money just for staying on top of your finances!
