What is a Money Journal and Why Would You Want to Keep One?

A money journal is a personal record where you can track  income, expenses, savings, and financial goals. They can help people control over their finances, manage their budget, and make informed decisions to achieve their financial aspirations, such as saving for major purchases or achieving long-term financial security.

It can be a more structured opportunity to keep track of habits, spending and investing…or more of an exploration of money mindset…or both.

Some pages that might be included:

o    Expense tracker
o    Budgeting sheet
o    Investment tracking
o    Investment planning
o    Ideas for saving money

You could include prompts for:

o    Cultivating a better money mindset
o    Improve budgeting skills
o    Brainstorming ideas to boost income
o    Avoiding and getting out of debt
o    Increasing savings
o    Investing – doing more and improving the quality
o    Financial goals
