I suck at budgeting. I believe it is the single reason we are poor and continue to be poor. Seems like such a simple idea and yet I never do it. I never tell my money where to go and before I know it, it is all gone.
This week sucked. I had such high plans for the month of Oct. I still do have those plans and it will not change. However, the start has not gone according to plan and I need to make adjustments. In the past, I would simply stop trying when things did not go my way, but I am getting better at letting it go and moving on.
We had a big blow to our budget, as our air conditioner has gone out. I am torn between this being a financial catastrophe, just when we were getting our affairs in order, and being a blessing that it happened now and not a month from now when the heat would be unbearable
