It is something we all love to hate. We need it. We want it. We crave it. We hate it.
There never seems to be enough. There are always too many bills. There is always something.
But a few of my friends remind me not to hate it...that even though there are ALWAYS bills to pay, I have the money to pay them. And even though there never seems to be any extra, we find the means to splurge on certain things.
But here's the deal. I am challenging myself to 30 days of only spending on the essentials. That means food, pet essentials, and maintenance stuff like gas, phone, etc.
The first two challenges I have to tackle are taxes (no, we have not gotten them done) and a budget (something that has always scared the hell out of me).
So here is to a successful day 1...Monday is a new beginning.
A little about me
I blog for fun, to get my thoughts in order. I am a mom to two frustrating and wonderful kids and one diva dog. My full-time gig is teacher and I do some side hustle with a few DS businesses. I love working with people...but I also value my alone time since in reality I'm a huge introvert.
