Yesterday, I received a good question and I can't hold myself to give the best answer as I can! ( and end up to answer the questions in two parts of posts actually ). So the question is :
"Is it important to track and control our expenses in college? and if yes, how to do it?"
Yes! it is very important to track how we are spending our money. But before we get into the point of how to track our expense, we may want to take a moment to understand why it is important to track our expense in college.

Surely, by keep in track how we are spending our money in college will teach us to spend our money more wisely then before. We will be able to control how much money we want to save and how much expenses in our budget.
4) Better future
