I spent almost half of this weeks budget today on a few groceries. Did I mention I HATE toilet paper. It's useful and all but SO expensive and such a waste of money. I think I'm losing it. I did really well the first two months and then I think the reality of it hit and I started to lose momentum. It's hard work being responsible. Not to mention I'm not good at frugality. It takes all of my energy just to stay on top of not spending money, watching where all the pennies are going and budgeting around my husband's spending and it's really not fun. I think I need a good swift kick in the pants to get me going again. I feel as though I've been acting like a baby recently, whining about not spending, and then spending with rebellion. At this point I just want to see that credit card elimination bar go up. I think I'll start snowflaking it like Louise. Every tiny bit helps. Every tiny bit I don't spend can go towards the debt. I can do this. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!


  1. YOU CAN DO THIS MICHALANN!!!!! I keep following your blog for inspiration to get started on my budget but I can even get started to figure out what I can spend per day...which I fear may be $1.00!!!! :) Hang in there girl!!

  2. I think you're doing really well with such a tight budget! It's hard to stay motivated some days, but you're making progress. I agree with Kelly, you CAN do it!!
