Keeping up on my Budget

I've been mostly keeping up with my budget so far this month of July 2018. Tomorrow is the middle of the month, so I'll make sure I get everything updated. 

Things that have helped me stay on target this month -
  • Having a nice format for my budget
    • This took a lot of tinkering in excel/google sheets to figure out the format I liked
  • Banking Apps on my phone
    • Logging in with a finger print makes it easier to regularly check my spending
  • Picking a day to not spend any money with "a plastic" (Credit card/debit card)
    • Sometimes it's nice to let banking/spending accounts settle for a day. 
I haven't listened to Dave Ramsey in the past week, because work and life have picked up in busyness, and I've been playing a lot of Fornite :) I need to listen to Dave again to get reinvigorated on budgeting and saving money. 

What (should) be cool at the end of the month is seeing the leftover money I have. Part of my budget is investing money, so the leftover money can be used for anything I want. 

How do you keep track of your money/budget?
