2011 Totals

Starting in 2011, I will be working on a new feature on the website. I will be keeping track online, my monthly spending and savings per month. I encourage you all to do the same and to email me your monthly reports every month so that we can keep a running total of everyone’s spending and savings on the website. (Your amount will be calculated in a total amount and will not be listed individually) This will be a neat place that you can go to, to check out the total that readers have spent and saved.
