two words…budgeting sucks…and I don’t see the point of doing it …I can see why some peeps need it and how it helps them but in our case I fail to see the point…
Anyways , after a long conversation with dh it was decided that we would do it again for the month of June. The man is deluded. Let me tell you…Remember I had X-amount of money for grocery shopping? Well , we underbudgetted by £100…in other words on day 20 of the month I had run out of cash and had to use plastic (debit never credit).
So, this month I have £100 more in the purse and have to keep receipts and try filing into different categories…food, clothes, books………I can’t believe this was my idea in the first place!!!! Mad I know and so unlike me…my fault for being so impressionable and wanting to be like the peeps I admire…the intention was good…I’ll stick to it and wait 3 months at least to see if I become a budget savvy..yeah right….
Guess what dd17 sitting right next to me and reading this says…”I always knew budgeting was silly…”
