(Better late than never?) Unlucky for some. Not bothered by others. For me that’s one day off another successful week without using cash from the envelope! Winning. The question is: Save week 1 and week 2 cash now or reinvest towards week 3 and 4? I’m tempted to save.
That makes me question whether My Frugal Month is actually My Saving Month? I question this as our budget has captured everything including savings. The envelope cash is leftover or miscellaneous money. Maybe it should be My Budget Month, but we budget/plan everymonth anyway.
Remembering why is important though. Can we live off one salary? These first two weeks; yes. Perhaps it moves into next month then. This frugal, simplified, minimalist way of life will only benefit us long term. For those seconds of “oh I wish I had…(fill blank)” will bring just that, seconds of dreamlike enjoyment. Longer term it’ll definitely be negativity. That’s relating to stuff predominately don’t forget.
This is my frugal month…
