Budget Mondays

September 30, 2014

Monday – 9/29/2014

It’s Monday – a painful day for most people, yours truly included. Sometimes it is made even more painful as we remember just how much money we ended up spending over the weekend.

Budget

It’s one word that can make people cringe, angry and sad all at the same time, a rare occurrence indeed. There are plenty of reasons for this – people are told at work that their budgets are being cut, their ideas cannot be funded because they are not in the budget, and in our personal life, our budgets don’t usually quite match up to our desires.

1) You count calories, so why not count dollars?
2) Establish a routine to set aside time for budgeting

3) Set up different accounts
a. Or sub-accounts
4) Treat yourself
a. Life isn’t supposed to be constant budgeting and stress — have some fun!
