Tracking my spending has always been a task that I want to tackle but also one I constantly avoid. I have a general idea where most of our money goes and I know we rarely ever spend more than we make so maybe that is why it has never been much of a priority. However, in reading other personal finance blogs, I am beginning to realize that there is likely some "fat" in our spending that could be trimmed. I like nice starting points, so I will begin tracking our expenses on February 1st. That gives me two weeks to finalize a preliminary budget.
