|+||====== Personal Finance ======|
|+||I’ve always understood the value of personal finance, and been interested in tracking and managing my money. I started recording my own personal finance transactions in a log book when I was about 11 years old, and I’ve done it ever since.|

|+||I could still make improvements, however. I came across this blog where the author has [[https://jot.pratikmhatre.com/spending-trends-2017|documented his spending trends for the year]]. I like the concept of having a documented, personal Annual Report.|
|+||This is something I might try to do this year, to support the raw numbers that I collect.|
