I have been obsessed with The Dave Ramsey Podcast. I listen to him on the way to work, when I am riding the MUNI, and when I walk around San Francisco. For the past few years, I have had a mediocre budgeting plan that consisted of a spiral notebook and a pen. Halfway through the month, I gave up writing down all of the items I purchased , but I at least knew a general amount of what I should not go over. Thanks to a few listens to Dave’s show, I have discovered EveryDollar.com! This budgeting tool has really changed my view on my spending and now I am obsessed. I now have budgets started all the way thru December. The great thing is you can also download the App onto your phone & plug in the dollar amount every time you spend. I just bought a Strawberry drink from the local Taqueria and I was able to sip the cool, refreshing drink while plugging in $2.45 into the App. Yes, I am still in budget for my “restaurant” category. Give it a try!
