Journals are something I have enjoyed since being a little girl, there is something fun about documenting something that you have experienced or enjoyed and in a way I think this is why blogging appeals to me so much too, so when I discovered there was a journal that could document my spending I was really excited to get my hands on one to see if it could actually work.
What Did I Buy Today is spending journal created by an amazing and one of my favourite illustrators based in Portland (Oregon,USA) her name is Kate Bingaman-Burt and she has decorated the pages of the journal with drawings based on cash flow, quirky doodles and the things we spend our money on. Each page is cleverly thought out and keeps you interested which is great especially when it comes to the pages which help you save those pennies, there are even pages which have suggestions and challenges for saving money and the week by week tracker means you can track as you go rather than trying to guess and estimate what your out goings will be like for the month.
The paperback A5 sized book fits into any handbag, has a really quirky doodle covered and canary yellow cover which instantly improves any mood and is great to take out and about with you to set goals of where you wan't to be financially and how you are going to get there whilst tracking what you are spending your money on. I am always reading tweets about spending bans or apologies to bank accounts for the splurging but now you can make managing your finances fun and easy to keep track of whilst holding off on the "Obsessive Consumption".
What do you reckon will you be getting in on the journal keeping for your finances this year?
