Wow, I have been on a full blown budget for 2.5 months! Time sure is flying and I am slowly tackling my debt. I get a lot of questions about how I stopped living paycheck to paycheck in only 1.5 months. Even though I work full-time I never had quite enough to cover my living expenses and debt payments. I get paid biweekly and spent every payday stressing over how to make ends meet. It was exhausting and I knew I had to break the cycle, but figuring out how to stop living paycheck to paycheck was going to be tough.
Happy March 1st & Hump Day! Another month is gone, how time is flying. Last month was amazing, thanks so much for all your comment and encouraging words on My Personal Debt Story & How to Create budget post. As I mention budgeting is going to be major part of my life in 2017. It will help me save money and become more money conscious.
Happy Hump Day! This week is almost over and it’s the last week of February! Where has the time gone? This is my third week on my new budget and everything seems to being going well! If you missed my last post, My Personal Debt Story, is discusses the start of my financial journey. Whether your debt free or trying to eliminate it, you will need a budget. Creating a budget can be overwhelming at first, but it is a trial and error process, you will have it down to a science in no time.
As you guys will recall I talked about my goals for 2017 in my New Year, Bigger Dreams post a couple of weeks ago. One those goals was to save more money, in order to start saving I must look back at my financial story. I was always good a saving money and finding great deals. I started working at the age 14 ,I have only been unemployed for 1 month in past 23 years. Although I had a stable work history my finances were a mess!
