Spending Diary

Spending Diary

Have you ever received your paycheck and it seems like the next time you turn around you don’t have any money? For me it is the little things that add up; like having lunch at school or getting a snack out of the vending machine while I study. Now you can keep track of where all your money goes by keeping track of what you are spending it on.

I fully recommend that you try the demo version of this before you register that way you’ll have an idea as to whether you’ll even use it. I found it so easy to use that I’m certain I’ll keep using it. So I signed up after using the demo.

Should you decided to use it, registration is easy! Just click the Sign Up tab at the top of the page. This will take you to the form you need to fill out with your name, e-mail address, what type of currency you’re using, and of course you’ll need to create a password.

Going through the registration process will log you into the site. Now you’re ready to start tracking your spending. It will be set on the current day automatically, but just by clicking on the other days in the week you can switch to add a spend for that day.

To add a spend just fill out the spend form. You need to name it, you can also put a category as well, and then enter the amount the spend was. For example here is one of my entries:

Name: Lunch
Category: Food
Value: $5.50

Once you have the form all filled out just click the Add button to add it to your day! You can keep track of what you paid out on bills, errands, lunches, and more.

At the end of the week, or heck even at the end of the month, you might want to track your spending total rather than just the glance you get on the default page. So, click the Reports link at the top of the page, and it will show you a pie graph of your spending. You can view it by: today, yesterday, this week, last week, this month, and last month.

I think you’ll be amazed at what a visual impact seeing your spending on a pie graph will do to you. I was eating lunch at school, or snacking out of the vending machine way more than I thought I was. It’s amazing how fast that adds up!
