  • Quantified Self Toronto:Tracking time, groceries, prices, and other things
    Sacha Chua (http://sachachua.com)
    Tracking:
    What do I spend time on? Is it in line with my priorities?
    How do I want to change how I work?
    How much do the supermarkets differ? (Quite a bit.)
    Is it worth ordering groceries online? (Not really, for me.)
    What’s our typical grocery budget? $200-300 (regular), $500 (holiday) / month
    How much do we spend on different items?
    How often do we buy things?
    Is it worth switching to, say, lactose drops instead of lactose-free milk?
    How can we change our patterns?
    Future:
    What happens if I shift my time away from reading and writing to focus on drawing and meeting people? What’s a good balance point?
    How do my energy, happiness, and productivity vary day to day? What factors influence those? How can I stack the deck?
    What am I learning, and how can I share that with others?
  • Time tracking:What do I spend time on? Is it in line with my priorities?How do I want to change how I work?
    I think I’ll spend less time writing and more time on other projects.
