Has anyone else noticed that May is almost half over?
I've been in such a haze. It really feels so icky to fall down, no matter what your path is. Whether you're embarking upon a health path, career, relational, a sport or hobby, or a financial path falling off just sucks. <Shake it off, shake it off> Spring is in full bloom. My back is finally starting to feel a bit better. Every day is a new day.
Have you ever wondered how many people sit down and budget every week? I've been seriously thinking about that today. Generally I have a solid budget every week/ month. When I set it, when I stick to it life is pretty great. There's very little to worry about when you know that your money is behaving. Granted you have to say no to things you cannot afford. You have to actually think about your purchases. And you have to put effort into planning your pennies' purpose. But I'm pretty sure that most people just collect a pay check and spend money with very little thought involved. I do not think most people budget.
Okay, you are reading a financial blog but really truly curious, do you follow a weekly budget? Do you know what's coming in, what's going out and where it's going? Or do you just collect a paycheck and then spend it?
