Budgets and Scribbles

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.

Ok, fine.

It’s a good start.

  1. Stick by your team through thick and thin, despite the wins and losses.
    ‘The teams, the broadcast contract and our showcase games this year
    are going to generate tremendous excitement about this League
    and the great seasons to come. So besides the fact that both sports are being played with 11 players on the
    field, the similarity ends here.


  2. In the end, you will have assigned 136 confidence points (16+15+14+.

    It is Tennessee’s Rocky Top, Florida’s Old Ball Coach, and of course the Gator
    Chomp and the mighty Tim Tebow. Among those that came out
    in the wish list is a better line play, addition of team entrances,
    and crowd atmosphere.


  3. Suggest a landscape form with the columns having the most categories: meals, groceries, transpo (gas, car wash, other car related expenses etc), communications (mobile cards), etc. so he can just fill in the blanks. If he often eats out, the column width for meals should be bigger so that he can add to it as the day goes and the same for any category that gets bought several times a day. Or maybe a spreadsheet on his phone would do the trick. That’s what I do. 🙂
