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!
