Althought i prefer to do my accounting by hand, there are free softwares that do a lot of tasks automatically ( salary, taxes, charges, insurance, etc ) living you with very little input to add.

Start keeping track of how much you are spending. Keep all your receipts and record down everything.
Vegan cooking and baking is easy pie compared to accounting. Not that accounting is hard, just that most people don't realize how helpful and important it is.

|LedBoots||Hi. Cooking isn't hard at all, there's youtubes, easy recipe blogs, etc. :-) You'll save lots of $$. Do you have a hot plate or stove top? If so, you don't really need the rice cooker or slow cooker. (Rice cookers typically cook rice and similar gains; some double as a vegetable steamer. Slow cookers are like crock pots, you throw a bunch of stuff in there, veggies etc, and five hours later everything is cooked.)|

Plenty of websites around with plenty of recipes, look also for newsletters, google groups, mailing lists, facebook, twitter, local vegetarian and vegan groups and veggie places where you can have free cooking classes and recipes exchanges,
as said in another thread rather than buying in a supermarket you can buy way bigger quantities cheaper online, see if there is any alernative local food system like people sharing gardens or giving x money to local farmers for x random veggies and fruits per week... local anarchist places or alternative social centers tend to be high on advices on this side.
Note that from a financial point of view you don't need a slow cooker or a rice cooker... they are nice, but they are a more recent invention than rice, so doing without is a viable option. Always a bit money saved.
Ask your questions to staff and customers in veggie places ( happycow has a bunch of them ) they can give you loads of local advices.
Peta, vegan outreach etc must have plenty of veggie recipes, and you should be able to find cookbooks online, in .pdf by looking at some more obscure corners of the net.
