Today I got an email telling me about an easy web application, Spending Diary. I will employ this for my future posts about spending. By the way, writing down your expenses makes you think twice about buying things. It made my day to spend only $5 to get a battery for an old Timex watch instead forking over $30 for shiny new one.
Look around your place to see what can be repaired cheaply instead of buying new. Shoes may need new heels, clothes may need new buttons or zipper, but most times it is “cheaper to keep her”.
