Yesterday I made a budget. Not just a half-hearted attempt at rounding up my expenditures after half-way collecting receipts for a week or so. A real, grown-up budget, with breakdowns by week.
It feels GOOD to have power over my money.
We have a good budget, and even have room for a mini-vacation. October/November is a time when I tend to abandon my family for long work hours. Even though I work at home, I'm not "here", you know? So we're heading to the mountains for Oktoberfest for a weekend. And I'm leaving my devices at HOME. So no checking anything. :)
The best part? This isn't sacrificing savings or debt... this will be saving money, paying a huge chunk on debt, etc.
I feel GOOD.
