Saving money is hard. I'm not sure how I manage to do it, but I spend money like crazy. And I don't buy a lot of things. I don't have anything to show for it. Where does it all go?

Car payment
Cell phone payment
Credit card payment
Random necessities
Luxury items

The top three are all new ones for me. I had managed to avoid them for years! Making a cell phone bill the only real commitment I had. And while out of the country I didn't even have that. I think I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. I think I'm stressing more about these things and forgetting to focus on the important things. But ultimately I'm worried I will never feel like I'm living comfortably with all of these expenses, no matter how much money I earn. Maybe this is part of growing up that I've been avoiding all these years...phooey.

    I have a shoe addiction too, but I actually don't even remember the last time I bought any. I've done pretty well at cutting down on buying clothes or shoes. Now, if I could cut down on all of it! emoticon

    To reduce stress
Reduce that credit card balance.
Pay CASH when ever possible. and watch those 'luxury' items. Save up when ever possible to be able to buy those LUXURYIES down the road. A little at a time.
Yes, pack your lunch of quality healthy foods and don't skimp there.
