Ben Popken at The Consumerist with a tip for keeping track of your finances, simply.
One of the first steps to take in getting a handle on your budget is to
start tracking your spending, and for those who like to do it analog,
moleskine small ruled notebooks ($10.50) are awesome.
fit in your pocket. They have a nice hard cover with a bit of pliancy.
There’s a folder in the back where you can hold receipts. There’s a
built in ribbon as a bookmark. An elastic strap keeps the whole book
bound shut. It feels very legit and professional, yet personal.
Ok, so what’s the point of all this fetishization? Won’t a regular notebook or piece of paper do? Certainly.
