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!!!
