  • So, how's the budgeting going? I know some of us have been budgeting for a long time and some of us just recently started.

    Let's hear some success stories--and those stories that could use a little encouragement, too!

  • This is a hard time in our budget. DH got paid on the 12th, but that means that we had to last until the 31st on the same amount of money that usually lasts 15 days or so. So it's definitely tighter than we'd like, but we're managing.

    Otherwise, thanks to The Total Money Makeover, which we've been doing for a full 12 months now, we've paid off $18,000 in debt!!!
    So a little squeeze in the budget is definitely worth it!!

    Ours is working out really well this month! At the begining of the month we just didn't see how we were going to make it to February because thinsg seemed so tight even with getting the extra money to pay off credit cards...but it has made such a huge difference already! We've even found that we have a little money to play around with. It really helped being iced in for a week and not using gas or going out to eat! Next month looks even better! Now we might be able to take care of some much needed things, likes new glasses/contacts for me.
    I'm actually even looking forward to doing taxes to see how much we will have to pay off bills with!

  • Oh yeah..and I even got DH really on board now...At first he was really offended when I wanted to tone down his plans for Valentines Day, but now he can see how much better it will be next year if we can stick this out this year!
