    Good for you for being involved with your finances! I agree with you in some ways about how a website might make you feel like you’re on top of things but like you said, your habits don’t change. I definitely recommend the old fashioned way – write everything down! Even if you do it for 1-2 weeks as an exercise to really see where your money goes. I think some people are afraid of the result but yet without starting to take charge of where your money goes, any problems people are worried about are probably still there and may even get worse without action. So, yes, I think a little notebook does the trick and then you can carry it with you so you don’t forget anything! Your budget worksheet is a great supplement when it’s time to sit down and organize your budget!
