What is an expense tracker? 

An expense tracker is a tool for recording and categorizing expenses to track spending habits.

It can be as simple as pen and paper or as advanced as online software.

The purpose of an expense tracker is to give you a clear overview of where your money is going, helping you make more informed decisions about your budget.

Why track your expenses?

Tracking your expenses is the first step to taking control of your finances.

You can identify spending patterns and areas where you may be overspending or where you can cut back. 

Doing so can help you create a budget that works for you and allows you to save more money for your goals and future financial stability. 

What categories should I include in my expense tracker? 

Including all your expenses in your tracker gives a comprehensive view of your spending

Some typical categories to consider are: 

  • Housing (rent, mortgage, utilities)
  • Food (groceries, dining out)
  • Transportation (gas, public transit)
  • Entertainment (movies, concerts, hobbies)
  • Health and wellness (gym memberships, doctor appointments)
  • Personal care (haircuts, beauty products)
  • Debt payments (credit card, loans)
  • Savings and investments

How to use the expense tracker printable

  1. Download and print the expense tracker template of your choice.
  2. Fill in the date of your expense, category, description, and amount spent.
  3. Total up your expenses for the week or month.
  4. Compare your total actual expenses to your budget and make adjustments as needed.
  5. Use the notes section to jot down additional information or insights about your spending habits.
  6. Keep track of your progress and see where you can make changes to improve your financial situation.

Tips for using an expense tracker

  1. Be consistent: Make tracking expenses regularly a habit, whether daily, weekly, or monthly.
  2. Use multiple trackers: Consider using different trackers for different categories of expenses, such as must-haves – utilities, transportation, etc., and nice-to-haves – dining out/takeout, entertainment, etc.
  3. Color code: Assign a color to each expense category for visual organization. Or highlight the expenses you could cut back on.
  4. Use cash: Using cash for purchases can make it easier to track expenses as you physically see the money leaving your wallet.
  5. Review and adjust: Regularly review your expenses and adjust your monthly budget if necessary.
  6. Be honest: Log all of your expenses, even the small ones. Doing so will give you a more accurate picture of your spending habits. Ensure you always have enough money to pay the must-haves (aka your bills and groceries) before spending on nice-to-have things. 
  7. Plan for the unforeseen: Leave some room for unexpected expenses and emergencies in your budget. Start putting money aside for an emergency fund as soon as you can. 
  8. Set goals: An expense tracker is great for goal setting. Look at the data, see which adjustments and cutbacks you could make, and set financial goals (e.g., saving money, creating an emergency fund, paying off debt) and track your progress towards them.
