When Refine My Money told me about her series on money diaries in different major cities, it sounded like a fantastic idea. She then asked me to write one up for her and I was in! I had seen other people keep money diaries but was never organized enough to do it. It is definitely an exercise– meticulously tracking my money is not my thing. However, I made an effort to track my days and my spending in order to show what a week of mine living in Portland looks like. I thought it would be uninteresting since I’m generally pretty frugal– but there were some fun surprises!
Please head over to my post on Refine My Money to check it out, and let us know what you think! She also has other posts from Austin, TX, and personal money diaries from her different trips.
