Too much everything

April 28th, 2011 at 06:51 am

I hope to eventually post the specifics (once I actually know them) until then just think of it as getting to experience the anticpation of christmas morning. I can assure you it will be well worth the wait. What? you cant wait you say? Snack on this for a few. My husband used to make $80K a year, changed careers and now we live on a little less than half but it didnt matter even at 80K we didnt do what grown folk should do and at $37 we dont do what we must do. Our lives have been excessive. I almost cringe to say this but we dont even keep track of our check book. We run it mentally (eye roll). We have been poor, well off and in between and it never really changes. Im convinced of this- it is not about money. The money is just saying whats going on inside. However, regardless of what cant be seen, we have little ones and this isnt okay to live like this anymore. Hold on to your weaves, hats and unbrellas its going to get rough. Tommorow is payday and so it begins.

    Welcome. Its the habits that you create now & what you do now that matters. Step out of the "then", learn from the "then", but embrace the "now".

    Welcome. You can do it. It just takes the right mindset and determination.

    That recognition, that it isn't necessarily the money that leads to the good financial situation, is a huge understanding that many people never understand during their lifetimes. In fact, it is the best insurance that things will get better as you make the decisions that will get you to where you want to be! Good luck to you...

    Welcome to the group. Most of us have been in the same boat to one degree or another. I think it is a matter of making choices about what is important to you and your significant other. And he does need to be in on the game in order for it to work. For example, when he goes to work, he probably has lunch. Does he buy his lunch or take it with him? I can buy even the most basic lunch like a simple salad and an iced tea and spend around $7. Multiple that by 20 working days a month and you have spent $140 just on lunch alone. He could probably make even the same kind of food at home and take it with him and spend less than 1/2. That's just the beginning. It may take a lot of small changes, but that's a good way to start. Again, welcome to the group. You will find lots of friends here with good ideas. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
