I’ve been bugging my husband to pick up my Dave Ramsey book so I can get him on board with changing our lives, again. I know he’s not very interested in reading and he does find some of this number stuff boring but we really need the same enthusiasm towards our budget. Continue reading “It’s now a team effort!”
For so long I’ve always meal planned or shopped utilising specials of the week ect, but at the beginning of the month I set a $750.00 food budget and now I’m not so sure it was the right way to go about our shopping.
The first week we spent $187.33 at coles utilising specials and $36.92 at our local convience stores specials, the budget quickly started to disappear with just $525.75 left. Continue reading “A new approach to shopping”
Numbers aren’t supposed to be fun I guess, tomorrow I’m hoping to to smash out all my errands and come home in time to relax before my MRI in the city.
The thing is I’m starting to feel like I haven’t had a break financially since March, Things are always popping up out of the blue. Specialist appointments, medications, school expenses, general life expenses and the bills. Continue reading “Working towards goals.”
Yet another post to do with hubbys birthday I guess, but to cut a long story short here’s what happened. I don’t handle the heat well lately and I had a ton of cooking to do, my mum turned up and saw how flustered I was so we went to pick up things to make the BBQ easier, that’s when mum purchased hubby a nice chocolate mud cake with fresh cream and chocolate shavings.

So I finally did the number or what I could of them. Surprisingly it wasn’t that bad, over the last 7months of “yolo” living mum husband and I discovered we actually went back into debt by just under $5,000. So I’m ok with that it’s not an overly large number, we owe family now too after our big family crisis and that’s where this number drastically climbs… Nearly an additional $15,000. Holy crap. Continue reading “Here we go again… Debt is stupid.”
And I should be working on our budget. One of the hardest things we’ve had to admit through this 7 month of yolo living is that we have over spent, with money we shouldn’t have touched. Now we owe ourselves a lot of money. We decided to take a Dave Ramsey approach to fix what we’ve done. Continue reading “Finding Dory is on repeat…”
