Do you have problems sticking to a budget? If so, this swap is for you!

For this swap, you will create a budget for the first two weeks of January. Then you'll try to stick to it.

Get a notebook (handmade or storebought) that you can use for two weeks. On the first page (or pages), write out your budget and anything else you think is important about your budget. You can explain it as much as you want for your partner, or simply put the budget and continue to the next step.

On the rest of the pages, you'll track your spending for first two weeks of January. You can do this by posting in receipts (black out personal information), simply writing in what you spent and on what, or however you want to do it. If you don't spend anything that day, write something instead. Each day should have at least one thing written or pasted in. At the end of the two weeks, write a summary on how well you stuck to your budget. You can include anything you want. Did you go over budget? Stay within your budget? Have any unexpected expenses?

If this is popular, I'll host another for the remainder of the month. Feel free to host your own international versions. For experienced swappers who want to do the full month of January at once, see my other version.

Requirements to Join:

Females Only as we may be talking about things that women feel more comfortable with when discussing with other women.

USA Only for postage costs.

Newbies welcome, but your profile mus to be filled out and you must meet the other requirements. No unrated newbies though. See below for rating requirements.
