Restarting my budget (once more!)

Ok.  I’m going to try to restart tracking my income and expenses once again.

I’ve tried.  I’ve failed.  I’ve tried again.  And I’ve failed miserably again.

I’ve tried paper solution.  I’ve tried desktop solutions.  I’ve tried mini-notebooks and bags and bags of receipts.

So, now I’m going to try an online solution.  It doesn’t directly connect to my bank accounts which is good for safety but will be more difficult for me to keep track of all my daily expenses.  However, I’ve already decided to cut back on expenses so perhaps that will be more helpful.

I think my biggest problem is that I have a type A personality.  So everything needs to be accounted for.  But daily life comes and takes over and suddenly I find I’ve gone 3 weeks without tracking anything and I have no idea where anything is and I just can’t keep my budget going with 3 missing weeks of data in the middle because all the numbers will come out wrong.

I’m crossing my fingers that I will actually make it this time.  I think the trick is to make it part of my daily routine.  So, it is now officially my homepage until I make a habit of it.  Wish me luck!
