September just started. Literally we are on day 1 and we are out of money again. This keeps happening. For a self-proclaimed frugal minimalist, I sure seem to broke quite often. I have done so well in the past, but I guess its a life-long journey to remain debt-free except the mortgage. I don’t know if we are still living like we have two full time incomes or just the price of life has gone up. I am going to use September to figure this all out.
The goal for September – stick to budget, lower expenses, say no and put down the credit card. I plan to share what I do to save money and how much money I spend daily. I am hoping blogging will keep me accountable because these last several months have been ridiculous. I am over overspending and having no money to put towards savings each month. I am tired of having more month than money!
Money Spend: $0
Money Earned: $0
Days Until Paycheck: 14
Saving Goals for the week: Pack lunches, “shop the pantry” for meals and find free things to do with the kids over the long weekend. Return Hobby Lobby items for cash.
I am open to feedback, encouragement, judging, you name it! I need to get back on the bandwagon! It all starts now.
