Debt Quote Tuesday/ $11 a Day

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

My average daily spending for the year is up to $14.65. That's $212 over budget for the year. One might say "Ah, $212 that's not so bad." But I'd have to cut almost $1 a day out of my budget for the rest of the year in order to catch that back up. A dollar a day, I'm learning is actually quite a lot of money.

Today I will take advice from Emerson and start a new. Today is a new day! I'm going to attempt $11 a day spending for the month of April. I may be up to a $14.65 average but that is in the past, now begins the future. Onward and upwards we go.

Thanks so much everyone for all the comments on the Easter basket post. You guys are awesome!

Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. Love the quotes. You can do it!

  2. Onwards and upwards! YOu can do it!

  3. I'm reading a book that is all about babysteps and tricking your brain into enjoying it. Achieving the biggest dreams and largest goals start with just a little babystep.
    You've taking loads of babysteps and doing real great. Starting anew may be just a great idea.
