This was the FIRST "real" week of us being on the Dave Ramsey budget - we had our FIRST Budget meeting last Saturday... and being the Free Spirit I had to BE there =) HAHA!! I think my FIRST surprise was that I actually LOVED it! I had a say... AND Chuck heard me! We now have an envelope to SAVE $ to spend on the grand babies =) I LOVE to shop for them!!
The SECOND surprise was that I actually got cash! HAHA!! I don't think I have EVER had that without asking =) I LOVE IT! I get CASH EVERY WEEK!! WOOHOO!!
The THIRD surprise was that I didn't SPEND my cash =) HAHA!! Dave Ramsey is RIGHT!! I don't spend the CASH as easily!!
The FOURTH surprise was that I LOVED saying NO =) It was actually EASY! I know- it is only the first week - but this is FUN!!
The FIFTH surprise was I MADE IT!! HAHA!! One week down =) I didn't think this could be FUN - but it is like a game to see how much $ we can have at the end of the week!! We are in the PLUS column!! WOOHOO!!
I have ENOUGH craft "stuff" to keep me busy for a few years... so my goal is to USE IT ALL up instead of buying NEW stuff - this includes scrapbooking, beading, knitting and even CAMERA gear!! HAHA!! The struggle will be to NOT watch QVC on Craft day =) AND NOT keep up to date on Canon "stuff" =)
I am mentally getting ready to SELL STUFF too! I think one of my first things to sell is my BIG printer - It prints 24" x up to 100" - and I LOVE it! BUT realistically - I am retired now and do I really USE it right now? I have to say I am pretty attached to it... but I am gearing up for it to GO! =)
Now... the final surprise this week... I want to do this FOREVER! (that is how I feel now) I don't feel like I am missing out on ANYTHING!! I don't know that Chuck feels the same way... BUT being the FREE SPIRIT... Chuck is making this a real BLESSING for me!!
