I've been keeping a weekly diary of my savings on this board, actually.
I try to write a new entry every Monday (or thereabouts!). I've found that this helps to keep me motivated and spurs me on when I haven't really done much cutting back or switching suppliers. It does work but it can be difficult finding the time to write up all savings every week!
you're doing well, i dont have a clue how to even set up a spreadsheet
It's also really helpful to keep a 'spending diary' as well as a record of the savings you make. Having to write down everything that you spend acts as a bit of a deterrent for those impulse buys and also helps you to see where your money disappears to!
