I am OC-OC (obsessive-compulsive) with my finances.
At an early age I have been taught to list down everyday expenses and have learned how to budget my allowances. I keep receipts, I compare grocery prices and I take note of where my money goes up to the last cent. I keep my files neat and color-coded.
I have asked my husband (who is the complete opposite of OC-OC) to copy me and start listing and organizing his expenditures. I printed him a simple form to fill up daily.
At the end of the month, this is what I got.
It’s a good start.
