educational much?

I've been spending my ass off lately, even my boyfriend is scared of the amount of my credit card swiping.

Seriously, I'm at this point of cutting freezing my credit card in my fridge like Becky Bloomwood did in the Shopaholic movie.

I was talking about this to my friend, and she suggested this :




I'm a sucker for books with cute covers so this does it.
Trust me, I've tried reading Freakonomics but never came around with it..sigh. And yes, I consider this as my serious book ;) Sheconomics! Hello?? What's not serious about that? Pfft.

I know this book might put me to sleep within seconds but I've got to try.
My credit card bill is coming soon, so I'm not giving up till I've read this book to its last page. I know I can learn so much from it.

So my first step into my attempt to zero-ing my credit card statement(which is NOT impossible, I hope)

I installed this.



The CashFlow application for iPhone.
My boyfriend actually suggested me to install this app before, but after a few months of not applying I just deleted it from my phone. Unused apps bugs me, seriously. But now I think I'm ready to keep track of my overflowing spending; baby steps. 
The CashFlow application is a simple cash management software. You can manage your daily cash income/go, and can fix balance with simple operation. You can input description of transaction from history, much less keyboard operation.



I think by doing this I can keep track of my cash spending, and when I see the balance in my account and have a heart attack, I might reduce some online shopping. Online shopping is dangerous because you're only one click away from the stuff you want - my ultimate weakness.

Gahh I feel better now. One step ahead. One step ahead. Hee :)
