I quit tracking my expenses three years ago because I thought I didn’t need it anymore, that I had it under control. But girl was I wrong. I recently started again and I eat my money. Like, the amount I spend on food is ridiculous. Time to shape up! Thanks for this! 🙏🏻

Personal finances is an art. Requires discipline and patience. Practice makes perfect. The moment you realize you can save money and reproduce it, it motivates you to do it again and again. Don’t overthink it!! Just do it

I feel pretty lucky to already have a half decent emergency fund and no ‘bad’ debt so have really been focusing on savings and investment at this time and hope to build a greater than 20% savings rate! Great information!

Being an accounting major has taught me a lot about money. I started my personal finance journey back in college and that's how I was able to save up for my emergency fund until I started working and I was able to build my stock portfolio. Years later and I now have a few real properties and even insurances. WIth personal finance you can definitely save up no matter how small you have at first.

You are amazing. I currently still live with my parents and they do all of the financing. But me and my boyfriend bought a house together and are moving in soon. So these are really good tips and tricks.

If you won't use a sheet, use an app. There's plenty of apps out there for free. Some people get overwhelmed with a spreadsheet. You can categorise your spending and income and then export these figures as a spreadsheet.

Could you explain/make a video on how you make each category add automatically as you label them (13.55). This would be so helpful. Many thanks - Colleen

I like the idea of paying the bills close in due dates at the same time when paying before the due date to avoid forgetting. She said to pay on the 1st bill’s due date 👌🏾 Makes perfect sense. Thank you …



Love the video! How do you create a formula like the one on 4:40 which sums all the items on the same category?

I just like writing down what I spend and then calculate what I have left for the month. I always make a spread a month with my (static) expenses and static income, which will determine my budget. I also include some "may be" future expenses. We have a caresystem where everyone has to have a care insurance, and there will always be a certain amount you will have to pay when you need care of a hospital, drug, special care, I just defide the max amount I might have to pay by 12, so I have it at least laying around for when the bill actually comes
