I Lost The Count!

  While I thought I would not be able to keep up writing every day during the Holidays, I realized that I feel guilty of not posting anything on a weekday. On top of that, it is a pretty boring day at work! I checked my email this morning. I deleted three emails notification of transactions that went through my bank account without even taking a look at them. Why? Because I totally lost the count! I don’t know what came through and what is coming in the following days. I lost the balance on my credit cards and I have no clue what my Christmas budget look like.

 I always use MS Money in order to keep track of all my accounts; banking account, lines of credit, credit cards, personal loans, investments, etc. However, Christmas is such a hectic part of the year that I had a hard time pilling up all my bills so I can key them in at one point in time. Since Dec 20th, it has been out of control! 

What can I do? 

The answer is simple; wait! I’ll wait until Jan 7th and I will log into all my accounts and put them up-to-date in MS Money. Right now, there is no point of trying to go back in time and find out where my money went. It is just too much time consuming. Thanks to Internet, I will be able to get everything on track within a few minutes once the Holidays are over. In the meantime, I will concentrate on spending less, stop eating out and get back to my normal habits. I am sure that once everything is updated, I will find out that I busted in several budget categories! Oh well, I am receiving my bonus in a few weeks so it will compensate at that point!
