Good morning Mintdom,
For me, part of living a healthy lifestyle includes living a healthy financial lifestyle. In order for me to have a healthy financial life, I have to have a couple of things: an income and a ‘working’ budget. A ‘working’ budget is the key. Oh, I come up with budgets all the time. In the past, I have done well with my working budget; however, like diet and exercise, it does not take long to get out of the habit of paying attention and keeping track. That is where I am now. I have not paid attention for a while – until yesterday. My sister Becky had the great idea to do our finances together, so I packed up my computer and my statements, bills, etc., and headed over to her house. I am so happy that I did that. After looking at my spending, I know where I can cut back, and I found out that I am not in as bad a shape as I thought!
It was scary going in, but I can tell you that once you take an honest assessment, no matter how good or bad it is it is a freedom to know where you stand. Not looking is like not going to the doctor because you are afraid that you might have cancer. The thing is, if you DO have cancer, staying away from the doctor will not make it go away; however, going to the doctor might mean getting a cure for it. Does that make ‘cents’?
AffirMINTion: I LOVE working on my finances!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
