The Blunt Bean Counter noted in The Globe and Mail- Nine expenses you underestimate

Thanks to Roma Luciw for referencing me in her column today, "Nine expenses you underestimate" in the Globe Life Money Section, page L4. Roma, the web editor of the Globe Investor personal finance site, writes an insightful column on Monday in the G&M on various personal finance issues. She is also one of the contributors to Home Cents, which provides expert tips on how to make money and save money.

Roma’column today touches on budgets and underestimated household expenses. Although a mundane task, budgeting and tracking expenses is not only necessary to ensure you have enough money to pay your bills, but it is also the starting point for savings.
