I have started tracking my spending and totaling the amounts at the end of the day. I was extremely surprised to see that I have already spent almost $200 in 2 days! This was a wake up call for me. I did not allow myself to spend anything else in the evening, which meant no drive thru on my way home and no Postmates in the evening. Spending $100 a day is just not acceptable for someone who is trying to get out of debt. I’m glad that I started this practice since seeing it on paper seems to be more effective.
