Unbudgeted Items Introduction
Life can get a little crazy. We can think we deserve a special treat. Trust me, I know!
And sometimes those ‘special’ treats just aren’t in our budget. Maybe it was a mistake that we didn’t budget for them, maybe not. But whatever the reason we seem to run across unbudgeted items just too often! We try hard to stick to our simple budget, but sometimes we can’t (or won’t!!). And even though it seems like we aren’t spending much over, it all adds up over time! We have specific goals we want to hit, and we can’t do that if we keep over spending!
I have decided it is time to start being a little more accountable for over spending our budget. I will try to document every time we go over our weekly cash budget and spend more than our cash allowance. Sometimes we’ll need to and that’s fine, but sometimes we’ll just be splurging because we want to. Hopefully over time, these ‘want’s are going to decrease as we share how irresponsible we’re being!
I like to think I’m perfect. But that really isn’t the case. Feel free to leave comments and encourage us to do better, or share how you went over your weekly budget too!
I will try to post the majority of our unbudgeted spending, but I may not be able to! (Though I have learned how to post without Brian’s help- AND how to schedule my posts for different times!)
Sometimes I just need help saying no to my husband (and that iPhone he’s been trying to talk me into!) Sometimes we all just need a little encouragement. Feel free to share your weekly accomplishments too!!
I can’t wait to hear from you!!
