Due to Economic Times

May 18th, 2011 at 09:26 am

Hubby and I are bad at keeping on budget. But now, we are trying to move out on our own, pay off our debt, and save money. Because of this, we will be staying on our (already low) budget. We get a date night once a week. The rest of the time is eating in. That was the lowest I could get it without us cheating on our budget. But we've been bad lately. Spending extra. And we cannot afford to do that! So, we've spoken and agreed that we need to start staying on budget immediately. We pack lunch for work. We stay in more than go out. We lowered our weekly date money from $50 to $30. It sucks, but that's what needs to happen in order for us to save the most we can. We don't know how long it'll be before we have to move out on our own, so we've begun buckling down.

We are just waiting for some money to come in, but Hubby's car fund is all done when that money gets deposited. I can't wait to get rid of this clunker. So we'll only be putting money towards our emergency fund starting this week. Smile

    I know it can be very hard to limit yourself in the short term for the benefit of the long term, but it is well worth it and eventually you will be very glad that you stuck to your budget.
