I was pleasantly surprised to get a track back comment yesterday on my FREE printable tools page that informed me of a blogger who had used my printable Expense Tracker and shared the results with her readers. Her website is about personal finance, and she originally posted that she and her friend were going to be tracking their expenses, and they followed through with it!

HOORAY for them! Tracking your every expense can be a daunting task, but it’s so important if you really want to know where your money is going.
I thought this would be perfect to share with you, because it shows just how someone can use my Expense Tracker tool to track their monthly expenses AND do some analysis of what might need to change.
Click here to visit Caviar and Quarters. It’s her November Money Update post.
I like how transparent she is with her readers. She actually scanned in her printed Expense Tracker and let everyone see just where her money went last month. She offers some explanation to go along with it, and then she got to the business of identifying things that she can change for next month and beyond.
The first time I ever tracked my money for one month, I was blown away. This was quite a while ago, and much has changed since then, but by tracking where every penny goes, you’re able to see exactly what needs to change.
