financial practices, tracking ones income, budgets
Of the different methods to track your income and expenses, some are detailed and time consuming and some are simple and quick. Each has advantages and disadvantages. The Budget Register Method is a comprehensive yet simple and fast method. At any time during the month, the register shows exactly how much you have spent, or have left to spend, in each expense category. (If another tracking method would be better for you, see Extension Extra 14079.)
