Ballin on a Budget
I was on a blogging hiatus, I need to figure out some things on my journey to "Financial Peace" so I thought I would get advise from some one smarter than I. Recently I purchased our Financial Peace University Kit. Now this is no walk in the park but it is very helpful.
Once I did my worksheets I felt like I had just been kicked in the gut. How has my family been surviving? How have I just thrown so much money away? How could I have let this happen? Well at the time it was pretty easy! I mean 1,2 or 3 COACH bags a couple pair of new shoes. My excuse "well I work hard, I deserve it!" Yes, with that attitude I deserved what I got. A whole lotta crap and nothing of value to show for it.
We're getting on track, coming to an agreement about our lifestyle (the spouse and I that is). Our adventure will bring new and exciting ways to think about our relationship with OUR MONEY.
We've shied away from reaching for the Debit card, cut up the Credit card and started with the trusty ENVELOPE SYSTEM.
Here's to the future of "Ballin on a Budget" woot woot!
