Then I said “I’ll do it later.”
There used to be a religion who believed, when you die, you have to cross a long, narrow, and flimsy bridge. If your body and soul was light, you could cross the bridge safely and enter the realm of eternal bliss. If your body or soul were heavy, you would fall from the bridge into a pit of darkness and despair.
But now, I have a bi-weekly budget that is bomb! I have enough for what I want and need.
Of course, a crucial part of the budgetting was quitting smoking- um, DONE!
I moved to an apartment with a workout center so I don’t have to pay for a gym membership. Best part- there’s cable in the workout room, which (since I don’t have or need cable) is extra incentive to work out and be healthy!
I save 200 a month, and if I miss a payment, I owe it (I’m $1600 in debt to my SAVINGS ACCOUNT – which is an okay way to be in debt)
I’ve paid off my credit card. I can only use it if I have a payment plan decided.
I now live closer to work, so I save on gas. I have $20 a week for gas. $40 to spend. If I get behind on payments, I cut back to $20 to spend- which buys essentials.
Overall, I’ve got it! My life is pulling itself together!!
