The "B" Word

Have you ever thought you were going along, doing really well with your money management and then you make the stupid smart move of looking things over a little more closely? 

Yeah, well, I did that yesterday.

My initial reaction was like getting on the scale after Thanksgiving weekend.

What the WHAT?

So I spent a few hours revising and revamping.

And then I spent a little time considering how I can make a little money to pay off my student loan. (yes, I still have one and yes, it's been awhile since I was in college paying OUT OF STATE tuition thankyouverymuch)

Things are going to get a little ugly around here financially while Dan and I work on better plan with more savings.  
Have you said the "b" word lately?  How is your financial health?


  1. Ummm, I hate the "B" word. Truth be told, TJ would love to talk about creating one, but I DREAD it! I keep saying I'm going to work on a "B", but have yet to do it. Maybe your posts on saving all this money will finally motivate me :)

  2. Maybe - you can say to TJ "The Olsen's have a budget!" and he will be thrilled!!!

    You just don't have to say it's the Olsen's with an E! :)

  3. Ha Ha, that's funny! I'd give it a try but then he'll be bugging me about why you have a budget and we don't :)
