well, tracking spending lets you know just how much you suck at saving money.
Between two people, we managed to spend around $4,000 this month. Granted, some of that was due to people visiting 2 weekends this month. And I had expected to spend around $3500, so with that in mind it's not too terrible. However, I want to spend less than expected - not more. But at first glance it looks like some of the overall debt has gone down a little. A progress update will follow soon.
My quest for alternative streams of income is going rather well, if you take well to mean something is better than nothing. I made almost $9 today in alternative income. Now, if I could just do that every day of the month, that would pay for my groceries!
