I mentioned in my March budget report that I had spent $50 on a fancypants planner. It is from Plum Paper. I am enjoying this purchase immensely! I think I may buy one every year from now on. This is a look at how I have been using it.

    Wow! that planner certainly focusses your attention on how dollars are spent! I like your idea of highlighting each payment...visible at a glance. I hope you'll mention this again at year's end when you will have annual figures to allocate as targets 2018.
