I track monthly and annual expenses (broken down to monthly cost and placed into a savings account each month) fixed expenses in an Excel spreadsheet. We pay out all of our fixed expenses and savings first each month, then withdraw cash once for everything else.
We use cash for non-fixed expenses such as groceries. We have a monthly cash allotment for groceries of $400. All groceries, basic household items, and dining out together comes out of that cash. We each also get $300/mo as a personal cash allowance to do with as we please. This is for lunches out, entertainment, alcohol, clothes, shoes, etc… It’s sort of an all-in-one cash system that allows us to maintain our own priorities without judgement. If you REALLY must have that latest gadget or expensive handbag, you’ll have to save your cash stipend, not dine out, etc…
We also have a monthly “shit happens” budget. Things like - someone took a crowbar to one of my exterior doors last month, and I unexpectedly needed to replace a door.
Anyway, this system keeps us from getting into the weeds with tracking every little thing, keeps us from going over budget despite not tracking everything, and allows us the freedom to use our monthly money however we please while not significantly impacting either savings or quality of life.
