So why isn’t your budget working? You got a fancy spreadsheet, sat down with a strong cup of coffee and decided it was time to put down a serious big-girl budget.
You intended cut your dining expenses in HALF effective immediately, but then you got busy at work and was felt totally wiped out so you ended up grabbing food on the go, and well…those extra few Starbucks runs (and maybe a few scrumptious cupcake pops in there and a cute mug) were TOTALLY NECESSARY because you were exhausted and deserved a treat...and heck, that mug you got is both adorable and functional and will save you money in the long run and you didn’t really give it much thought, but hey it’s just $10..
…and how did this happen if I had a budget?!
If this sounds like you, watch below…
Have I committed any these budget flubs when starting out, you betcha, guilty as charged! Heck, I couldn’t talk about this stuff had I not been through it myself! 😉
I think the word deserve is the death of a lot of budgets. 😉
HAHAHA Lorie, I wholeheartedly agree! I know I've used it more times than I'd like to admit, and it especially comes out when I know I shouldn't buy something!
