For now, you can look at the video:

Why I love KAKEBO.

By using the kakebo you can really learn the Kaizen Mood
and the basics of the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve & Control).

Here more details:

Define a Target

With Kakebo you define clearly how much do you want
to save on a monthly basis.


Starting to register in a disciplined way how and where you spend
your money, you learn to measure.


At the end of the month, you look your spending data and you can
really understand the voices that cost you more.


If you started in February, in this phase you can decide what you can improve
in March to reach your saving target.


By using the book regularly you always control
how your spending profile is going.

KAKEBO teach you the Basics of Problem Solving.

Learning by doing is a must!

With this personal accounting, you will learn to answer
the questions of Problem Solving:

  1. What is the target?
  2. How far I am from the target?
  3. What are the main causes that do not allow me to reach the target?
  4. What can I do to remove the cause and reach the target?
  5. When do I expect to reach the target once the improvement is done?


When you start to do this exercise you really learn to be:

  • Disciplined
  • Oriented to Continuous Improvement (KAIZEN)
  • A little bit more aware of yourself, your time and your money

I really suggest you buy and start saving!
