Debt Quote Tuesday

Day 172 of $12 a day. We've paid off $2217.16 of credit card debt this year.
Never spend your money before you have earned it.
-Thomas Jefferson
This sounds so incredibly logical. Actually I read it and thought to myself, "yeah. obviously!!!" But as a culture if we're good at nothing else, we're most certainly good at spending money we don't have. When did we start thinking we were bigger than fact, truth, and reality?

These past two day's I spent $24.60 (I didn't blog yesterday). I'm actually not doing that badly this week. I haven't had any big spend days BUT I'm also trying to keep my total at $73.14 in order to get the month back on budget. This means I need to spend a bit less than $12 a day but I've actually been spending a bit more. I've got three days to catch back up but I'm certainly not feeling any big rush of will power.

I'm going to make this a super early evening and go to bed right now. Maybe a little extra sleep will give me a little extra boost tomorrow???

good nite.
