QOTD: How do you keep your finances in order?

I write all of my purchases in my calendar and any emotion if it was emotional spending, cash or a credit card.

With me having a personal finance channel myself, I’d have to say the advice you give that sticks out to me is keeping track of EVERYTHING.

Guys, you’d be surprised on how much money you spend on things that frankly don’t matter and don’t make your life any better. Identifying those, and cutting those expenses can drastically change the way you think about money.

Great video, AMY!

My mother works for a bank, and while the bank may have the ability to change your fees, not everyone you may speak to will. Be patient if you get redirected or someone says they can’t help you. Don’t go all Karen. Workers want to help, but may not have the authority or capability.

In the past few years, I've learned one big lesson about money. About life, really, but it specifically relates for me around money. It is this:

Just take a damn step.
It can be little, it can be big.
Just take. A. Damn. Step.

Once I start to take control of a situation, I FEEL more in control. I start to see that things can change and improve.

It took me a "while" to own and manage my money responsibly.

The one thing that almost everybody who is an expert overlooks is the necessity to dedicate time to organizing and creating a workflow of all the tasks, steps and processes of personal bookkeeping. I have 7 different tasks, and a total of 30 different unique steps I *must* take in order to update and maintain a current financial picture. That is what it takes for me to monthly get over the "agony" and "fear" sense of scarcity-- to keep from "shutting down functionally and emotionally" from doing all of these tasks.

There is a sense that technology will some how magically categorize, and in one fell swoop show you an amount for any given category and somehow, that is good enough. It isn't.

In truth it is more complex. For a lot of us, we are now self employed or have gigs-- and that income and expense has to be reported to the IRS on Schedule "C". You can't just say "business expense".

Quicken remains the only robust personal financial management software. Since it broke off from Intuit a couple of years ago--- their program, tech support, --and improvements to the program makes it a much better product. Used correctly, and with a little patience and planning you can get a better picture of your financial universe. I had to master Quicken because I wanted to qualify for a business micro-loan (at one time). Can't do that without an accurate-- personal financial statement. Which brings me another uncomfortable and annoying truth-- there is no point in doing this if the information is not accurate. So it requires attention to detail.

Imagine my delight!--- when the balance on my mortgage liability account in Quicken miraculously matched the lenders monthly statement. Another example is the necessity to capturing payroll deductions. We have coverage for among other things-- pet insurance, use of hte company vehicle, in addition to medical coverage. All of those are expenses that have to be accounted for, otherwise-- it creates a big hole in the overall picture. I just completed an extensive application for a loan modification and was able to generate all of the information they requested and relieved and at peace knowing that the reports were accurate.

It took me about three years to make this all work-- and believe me, you are much better off doing it yourself. It is worth it.

It's education, discipline and *organization*. -- I would add, a filing scheme, and a workflow system are essential.

Sorry for the length. Maybe some of this is useful.
