When’s the last time you looked at your grocery store receipt? Are your utility bills set to automatic payment so you don’t even have to think about them? The truth is, common expenses often get overlooked and disregarded. But you need to have a solid understanding of your expenses if you want to stay in a good financial position.
It may seem like the cost of something as inexpensive and readily available as a gallon of milk is inconsequential. But it’s precisely because these items are so common, and purchased so often, that even small changes can swing a budget one way or another over time. (Who knows — maybe after a review of your grocery expenses, you’ll find you can afford to upgrade to a fancy almond or oat milk.)
