Life Style Lift

This Blog is dedicated to my goal to change my life. In this blog you will read of my trials, triumphs and tests into improving the quality of my life and that of my family's life. It will start out with basic things, things I have influence over and will move on to more intricate changes. This blog will read like a diary, one of my goals is to update it daily, noting a small change I have made or maintained during that day.

From food to fitness, spending money to saving money, setting goals and achieving goals, and everything in between. Stay tuned to see how my Lifestyle Lift pays off!!

Cash Diet

Haven't quite got the budget under control, but I do have a Cash Diet now.  With the exception of groceries and gas all of my purchases are now done on a cash basis.  Groceries and gas are budgeted for debit purchases and since I usually get my gas at Costco it has become a necessity. 

I am hoping that by limiting myself to $50 a week I will be able to have more cash on hand for paying off debts and saving for my wedding bill.  I am refusing to ever go on vacation again and have debts accumulated.  A vacation must be paid off before it has begun otherwise it is just stressful.

I know I can do it, so here is to turning over a new leaf in the spending department.  I do have a shopping problem but I should be ok if I really focus and work hard.  Subbing jobs here I come!!!
