I love the movie Ocean’s Eleven (and Twelve and Thirteen…); it’s got George Clooney and Brad Pitt – what’s not to like?  It’s humorous and clever in ways that surprise the audience, not necessarily a movie that one would think can teach us a valuable money lesson.  Or can it?
No, it’s not a lesson about gambling or poker; it’s a lesson about knowing what happens to the money.
The only way that the team of eleven is able to pull off the heist is by knowing where the money goes and what happens to it.  They know where it’s kept and how it’s monitored, that’s their secret to success – and it can be your secret too!
Knowing where your money goes and what happens to it is the best way to keep it!
If you don’t know where your money is going, you may as well be throwing it away.
Many people have no idea how much they spend on a day-to-day basis.  They have a rough idea of how much they spend in a month, but when it comes to grocery shopping they are spending considerably more than they realise.
Do you know how much you spent today?  I mean the exact amount.  Did you write it down somewhere so that you can track it and know where your money has gone?
This is where my Abundance Diary proves to be a valuable asset.  Every month has an entire page dedicated to tracking day-to-day spending that is made even easier by the provision of the following category blocks: groceries, entertainment, personal/wellbeing, medical/vitamins, clothes/gifts and other/emergency.
This helps you to track the amounts that you spend, as you actually spend that money.  At the end of the month you are able to look back and assess the payments that you felt were excessive or unnecessary and plan to spend it somewhere important or save it in the following month!
Knowing where your money goes is a nugget that will bring stability and peace-of-mind to your finances.  There is also the flip-side to Ocean’s Eleven’s wealth nugget:  the guards watching the money didn’t know where it was going, and they lost everything!

Don’t bury your head in the sand and don’t detach yourself from your relationship with your money.  Tracking your money is crucial to regaining your power in the area of your finances.  My Abundance Diary, Abundance Journal, iPhone app and Webinars are designed to support and empower you to take charge of your life and your finances.Start by knowing where your money goes, so that you can get more of it to work for you!
