Kick up the arse: update #1

Please note: this is an old post. I have been blogging for a really long time: since my childhood, in fact. Bear in mind that any opinions stated may have changed, any code snippets may no longer be considered safe or secure, and my personal circumstances are almost certainly different to what's contained herein. You have been warned...

As promised, I’m documenting my progress following my big kick up the arse

This week I:

  • Unlocked my online banking account
  • Entered nearly 4 months worth of transaction data into YNAB
  • Paid in both a cheque (which I’m notoriously lazy about) and some cash (which I’ve never done before, I just spend notes!)

So, numbers back on track. Now just to finish a project. Hmm…

    Do you recommend YNAB? Is it working for you? It sounds like a dream come true for me. I’m literally living like the first example… one moment I’m getting paid £500 by a client thinking I’m rich, spending it and then screaming “ah, shit, bills” the next moment.

      Yeah, if I stick at it and actually update it every day (or even every week if I’m busy) it really helps me stay aware of what I’ve got coming up that will need spends, where my money is going etc. I will spend 10-20% less on a month when I’m actively using YNAB.
