Did you / do you track every penny you spend?
I did and I do. Before I retired, I tracked the pennies to see how much money I would need for retirement. Quite the eye-opener - no more high-priced mochas. I even tracked when I was overseas, and it's harder to do in krona!
Now I track because I'm not completely sure I've got spending down right. I'll probably stop pretty soon, 'cause I sure know where my money is going, and now I have a feel for it.
I figured out my "real wage" once - that was kind of interesting. Didn't do the rest of the stuff.
