Like The Song Says… Money

I about shit a brick when I opened this year's W2 and found out I'd made $36k in 2013.

That's a hell of a lot more than I'd made the year previously… 2012 had just squeaked by as being the year where I'd made the most I had made (narrowly beating that one year at Target where the overtime was an obscene amount). I must've worked a lot more overtime this year than I thought I had, because I made almost ten grand more.

The disturbing part is that I really don't know where it all went. I really should be keeping better track of my money, or at least my expenses, especially now that I'm not so poor that I expect to always be broke.

It's good to finally feel affluent, but it's definitely going to take some adjustment.

I could no doubt do it with a simple spreadsheet, too. It's just a matter of expending the effort now that it's actually worth doing.
