My 5 Reasons For Living The Budget Life

Cash Money

This will forever be a battle for me.  Who knows why it’s so hard!?  Obviously people save money to have financial security.  We are still really starting out in life.  Hopefully having a great savings will take some of the stress away that keeps me up nights, you know?

I need to shift my way of thinking.  Going from ‘I need this thing to make me happy’ to ‘What can I DO to make myself happy’.  It has been good for inspiration.  I have been forced to sit down and evaluate things that are important to me, like blogging.  I need to push myself to learn more.  I feel a public library trip is in my near future.  (Since i’m saving money I can’t just hop on over to Amazon).

It is also nice to work with Ioua on a common goal.  I’m not kidding when I say it is really hard for me.  I am ashamed to think of all the times I have been a brat because I didn’t get my way … and it’s been about a week since we really started this thing.  I appreciate Ioua so much for his patience.  He has such a good heart and I know its probably hard for him sometimes.  At least I’m working on it, right?

I also want to be good with money so that when the time comes I can teach my children.  I don’t want them to have to stress, even though I know some times you really just can’t help it.  But if they can help it – I want them to have those skills.

Lastly, and possibly the most important to me; I want to prove to myself that I am capable of accomplishing my goals.  If that isn’t a good enough reason then I don’t know what is.  I can do hard things.
