LEARNING MOMENTS

Family Budget

Are you a spender or a saver? I do know of a few households where the men are the spenders and the women are the savers, but that isn’t how this family rolls.

I’ve always been really great at spending, although, I am good at finding awesome deals! Not to say I am proud if that fact (well, kind of) but sometimes my need for instant gratifications come at a price.

Seeing as I am intending to go back to school next fall, the requirement to save for tuition is not lost on me. So, last week my husband put together a budget.  We seem to have a difference in opinion on how much to spend on what, but I digress, as what I am doing isn’t working.  To stop and see what we, or rather I, spend money on is incredible! It really is unsustainable.

While the budget is still fairly new, and I feel quite restricted, I am excited about what the future holds.  Cheers to a less stressed husband.
