Wait. I enter receipts in by hand? Doesn’t that take forever?

People worry that entering receipts in by hand will take a ridiculous amount of time. It really doesn’t — roughly 10 minutes a week for most people.

  1. Once a week, set aside a little time (perhaps during the commercial breaks of your favorite show?) to enter your receipts and find out how much money is available in your different categories.
  2. At the end of the month, look over how you did and make any necessary changes for the next month’s budget.

That’s it!
