This one has been a work in progress all year. My husband and I are both home for the night and are going to hit the sack as soon as the New Year hits, so we won’t be spending any more money this evening. Therefore, the spreadsheet for 2009 expenses is officially complete.
I found this process very helpful, so I will begin a 2010 spreadsheet tomorrow. I also will break down my spending categories into more detail, as they were fairly broad this year. We plan to save more and start spending less, particularly on food, so I’m looking forward to having something for comparison.
