Don't know where most of your money goes? Tracking your spending with cash, debit and credit cards will help you manage your budget and cut expenses. Look over your credit card bill each month also to see where you've spent money and to be sure there are no suspicious charges. And every year, be sure to get a free credit report from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion via AnnualCreditReport.com.
