Weekly Spending Report

November 13, 2011

I’m a bit lost on how to show my Christmas spending, because I save money and then sometimes I spend from my savings. For the purpose of these reports, I will just record how much I’m setting aside for planned spending. I will keep track of what I’m spending on paper and will post my total Christmas budget in December.

    I had a similar struggle tracking my Christmas spending in my weekly wrap up. I made it especially confusing, because I buy several gifts for others (we go in together, or I pick up an item for one of the kids on behalf of my mom, etc). It’s hard to break it all down & show it logically. :-)
