The wagon: running after it

July 22nd, 2010 at 02:56 am

In my last post, I admitted that I fell off the wagon. I am determined to get back on. Part one is redoing the budget and then altering our savings rates, etc. to make sure we are meeting our goals and getting the most value out of our paychecks.

I did scribble down all the bills and all the savings goals on a couple of index cards. Next step, figuring out what it all means and what is left after savings to pay for gas, food, fun, etc.

I will keep you posted.

    Um ... I think that was you that I saw while running in the other direction chasing my own wagon!!

    I'm right there with you - the past two weeks have totally trashed my budget/spending allotments - and sadly, I didn't even have anything major. I've just been a poor planner Frown

    You're too funny, momcents. I fell off the wagon a couple of months ago. It took me this long to realize it and admit it. It's going to take a little bit of brainwork to get things back on track, but I'm hopeful that we will be able to do it.

    The good thing about recognizing that you fell off is that it leads to a quicker correction period than the first time around, in most cases! You have the insurance of knowing what needs to be done, and how to get there... good luck in your efforts!
