Today I am preoccupied. I am thinking to much about our budget and online banking. Thinking about this stuff does not make me happy. I don’t like money, it stress me out. But I have to change that thought process. I have to get rid of the financial fear. I have to be the change I want to see. If I don’t like out finacial situation, I have to be the change in it.
I noticed latley I have been spending too much money. Nothing crazy, I just haven’t been paying attention to the little things. I have been loosley spending $10 here and $20 there. It is starting to add up.
So I am going on a budget cleanse,
I am going to try something out for the next two weeks. I am not going to spend any money, except my grocery budget of $100 a week, gas of $50 a week, and weekly allowance of $20 (I know it is weird that Court and I have allowance, but we find it is helpful to have so we don’t go spending non-chalantly. When we are finacially organized and doing good, we always seem to have an allowance.)
No more lunches out at work, no more take out coffee, no more online shopping or buying clothes.
I just have to buckle down and realize when it comes to stuff, I have more then enough!
I truly am blessed to have a roof over my head, food in my fridge and home full of love, I just want that home to be a little more finacially secure!
Any sensible family has a budget that lays out how much will be spent. Without such planning, things would go quickly awry.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
