Due to things beyond my control my monthly income has decreased by one third. Around the same time both my daughters have left home. I am sure it will balance. For now it is a little frightening. Therefore an old fashioned system has been implemented and a pencil and notebook are in my handbag. This is so I can try and record every red cent that is spent can be recorded. Initially I was relying on receipts. This failed as I was not given a docket in Aldi and the post office.
I have also returned recording my food intake at http://www.calorieking.com.au. This is free for me right now and is eye opening.
