For those of you who've expressed interest in my small obsession with money management and aspirations toward debt-free living, these are my top picks for philosophies and systems I've found so far:

1) Your Money or Your Life, by Dominguez (big picture). Get yourself dreaming in the right direction.

2) Mary Hunt's Debt-Proof Living, by Mary Hunt (smaller, day to day picture). Section 1 is the interesting part with the theory and philosophy. Section 2 is like all the other reduce-expenses guides out there.

3) The BudgetMap System, www.budgetmap.com (nitty-gritty tracking/spending/saving planning - it meshes very well with Mary Hunt's "Freedom Account" concept). I create my own spreadsheets based on their layout, which gives me lots of flexibility. Perfect for the truly obsessive.

And no, you can't drop pennies in my purse to mess up my tracking. It's not nice. :p

Would we do that? *innocent blinking*

Besides, pennies wouldn't screw you up.

Now, a random $5 would be worth the entertainment value.

Pity we wouldn't be able to witness it first-hand. Just grumbly, Yosemite Sam recaps from S.

Ahhh, but that actually works in someone's favor.

As they could chortle quietly to themselves in anticipation, knowing that at some point it would be discovered, but not knowing when.

Behold, the joy of unactualized expectations.

Fuck you. Do you know who has to do the reconciling when she's a penny off?

DO YOU?

Try it and we can discuss what voltage you'd like me to use - 220 or 440.

It's like tossing money in a wishing well, knowing your wish will come true!
