I try and take time each evening to record what I have spent in
microsoft money. I have a cash account that I use to record cash
purchases. I upload the information from my bank for debit and bill
payments so I can record where the money went. I keep the receipts for
everything. Anything that I do not have a receipt for I make sure I
write it down. I break down my grocery expenses. I separate out food
from other things that I buy ie. cat litter and dog food go under pet
expenses, cleaners go under household expenses, shampoo and soap go
under personal care. I don’t split up food into catagories, anything
we eat goes into the grocerery catagory. I use my debit card for most
shopping trips. In microsoft money you can split each withdrawl up
into various catagories. It works well for me.

When you record food, do you break it down at all? Like
treats vs food vs cleaning supplies?
