I thought I would jump back over to finances today because I am going to start the envelope system today. It's a little scary, kinda like the first day of a diet. I am just a bit excited though to see how well it works. Hubby is beyond excited that I am even considering it and thinking about saving money. :) This is not one of my strong points.
One thing I've been reflecting on lately as I've been doing this blog and probably just from living life for as long as I have is that we need to be open to doing things differently than we have for years and years. True growth and maturity is being open to change, even those things that have always been "who you are". If those things are not productive, or healthy or just immature than it is time to evaluate what changes need to be made.
I guess the reason I'm saying this in this particular blog is because I have always said, "I'm just a spender" "Or I hate the "B" word. (budget) and I just keep doing the same thing getting the same result. I always love the statement I heard that Alcoholics Anonymous says, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over thinking you will get different results". I am ready to get some different results in some areas of my life so I am ready to do some things differently.
There are alot of these so I will do half today and half tomorrow:
I'll stop there and finish the rest tomorrow. Happy Saving!
