Welcome to 31 Days to Organize Your Finances. By the end of the month, my goal is to help you have a detailed financial plan for your family. We’ll talk about cash flow, budgets, debts, and all of the nitty gritty of our finances that might not be fun to talk about, but are so important to discuss. Please refer back to the original post for a complete list of daily assignments.
The Good Life happens.
Girl Scout cookies. Unplanned invitations for coffee. A buy-1-get-1-free coupon to your favorite restaurant. An impromptu date night because of an offer from your parents to watch your kids overnight–now we’re talkin’!
The Good Life!
And when the good life comes calling, it sure does suck to not have any money for the fun.
Today’s assignment: Allow yourself some fun money!
Starting tomorrow, we’ll be working on our monthly spending plans and one thing that I want us all to remember is if budgets are too restrictive and rigid, they tend to not be very successful. So allow yourself some grace for all of your hard work, long hours, little sleep, and life’s challenges. You’ll be more refreshed and gung ho for the difficulty that life can throw at you.
Please note, I AM NOT A FINANCIAL PLANNER. This series was written based on my family’s experiences. If you feel you need additional advice, please consult a certified professional.
