    Wow. Are you super organized or what? Do you use software to keep track of all these totals? I'd love to know what I spend in a year, but wouldn't even know where to start keeping track.

    I don't use a software, but do it all by hand.

    I keep envelopes labeled: January - December for all of my groceries and eating out receipts; vehicle costs; clothing; homeschooling; house renovations/gardens; Christmas; birthdays; Vacations; etc.; all in a shoe box. Keeping all the receipts comes in handy when something needs to be returned or I find a rebate.

    I have a small filing cabinet where I keep folders for paid bills/debts, taxes, bank accounts, a personal file for me, and each one of my kids (to put their bank statements, report cards, SS cards, etc.) in.

    I also keep a journal where I write down each month on a page and then list all regular bills, debts and automated savings amounts that need to be paid that month. Plus I keep columns on the same page for groceries and eating out to write down those amounts for each month.

    I will take pics and get them posted in the new year.

    It actually would probably be easier if I used a software, but I like the hands on approach.
