The year started rough. Financially our wallets were tight. I knew we needed to start making changes to our spending, saving and overall thinking about money. Simple changes were made such as less frequent eating out, weekly meal plans that produced more structured grocery shopping and reduced spending overall. There had to be more thought put into the things we were buying and bringing into the house.visa
Gone are the days of walking the mall and shopping for nothing important. Gone are my lazy days of “I don’t feel like making dinner”. I’ve realized that in order to contribute I had to change me. Another change we made was the 52 Week Challenge. So far it’s working out well. We even threw a few extra bucks in there if we’re cleaning out wallets and purses. We are still early in the year so $7 or $8 isn’t hard to part with but we are committed to put together a chunk of money for something fun at the end of the year.
