Budget Progress

So, you might remember that we're trying out a budget. We're trying to get a better idea of where our money goes so that we can redirect it to where we want it to go.

Well - one month in, I'm happy to report that it's going really well!  The coolest part has been to stop using our credit card.  We have always put everything on our credit card and just paid it off at the end of the month. Those of you who do something similar know that sometimes, that's pretty overwhelming!! This month, we used our debit card, and it's cool to look in the bank account and see money, and know that it doesn't need to pay off any bills!

We also have gotten more conscious about what we're spending. We are certainly not starving, and I even bought some new shoes this month.  But... we both have thought twice before purchasing things, and because of that, we have more money in our account.

I'll keep you posted on our progress. Oh - and those shoes? Pink Kate Spade heels for $40. I can fit that into the budget any day!


  1. OMG -- I'm in love with those shoes. I wish I could wear heels without my back killing me! It makes me feel old.

  2. Those shoes are adorable!! Way to go w/ the budget! I need to budget better - or at least watch my spending!

  3. Good work sticking to your guns and budget. We're going on 2 years and it's so satisfying to know where every dollar goes.

  4. Good for you! That's encouraging news. We rarely use our credit card, and when we do, we make sure to pay it off before it accrues interest.


I love reading your comments - thanks for being a wonderful part of my blogging experience!
