Yesenia & I just spent four hours going through every single one of our bills from 2007, for our financial advisor report. That includes going through every one of our 48 credit card statements - each of us has an American Express and a Master Card - and breaking down our purchases into about twenty different categories.
And that doesn't include any of our other expenses that need to be tallied - mortgage, home equity, utilities, etc.
Wow. What a drag.
Still more to do tomorrow, but the bulk of the work was the parsing of the credit card statements. And I can't tell you how un-chatty that has made me. Enjoy your Saturday.
