Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on My Abilities in Finance. It needs to be at least 500 words. My mother uses a housekeeping book. When I was in elementary and middle school, she would sit next to me when I was doing my homework and scribble her notes into it. All the notes were precise records of our household expenses. I always wanted to know why she had to write down each penny earned and each penny saved, and keep such a laborious, detailed record of each penny spent and how. For me I thought she merely had to head over to a bank and open an account, and then it would be easy to keep tab on earnings and savings, and how much was spent. Looking at her day in and day out, making those painstaking records of our earnings and expenditure, she seemed stingy to my childish eyes. I resented what I saw as her painful pre-occupation with money. I told myself often that I would not grow up to be like her, at least when it came to housekeeping.
