How Rich Are You?
Cover your ears, I’m about to use the “B” word. Are you ready, go to the next paragraph if you don’t want to read it… BUDGET.
We’re coming to the end of our first month back on an actual for real we lived by it (for the most part) budget. It wasn’t easy, but it was great. We had done the budget thing before. We’ve done the envelopes, we just didn’t stick with it. A few months ago, we’re like where did the money go this month? We couldn’t say, cause we didn’t keep track of it. Sad, but true. So we put together an excel spreadsheet and here we are 26 days later.
We know pretty much down to the penny where all our money went this month. And it wasn’t all that bad. To be honest it was pretty nice. We’re gonna have to adjust some things around, but hey we’re doing it. Do you live on a budget. It does a body good… no serious it does. It also helps the ‘bottom’ line. Living on a budget has helped keep me out of those nasty evil fast food establishments.
