Here’s a tip that I read about some time back, implemented it in my own life, and found it to work.

When you withdraw cash from an ATM, don’t throw the transaction receipt. Instead, keep it in your wallet and each time you spend the cash that you withdrew, note down the expense on the back of that transaction receipt. It’s an excellent way to track your expenses.

What do you think?
