So the first month of the all cash no credit budget is going pretty well. At least for me. However one small glitch is that I keep forgetting to give the husband his share of cash. Oops. Then he is forced to use the plastic.
So actually, I'm not really sure how this budget is going. I know that I have cut back on spending. Which is good. But I also am realizing that staying inside the parameters of a budget is REALLY REALLY HARD! Especially when Husband's expensive work boots lose their sole after only six months! (Thanks to F/F for working with us on that.)
Money is probably the hardest area to give over to God. But I'm gonna keep trying to give it all back to Him because it doesn't belong to me anyway. And besides, I know that God is good all the time. Even when I feel like life is tough. But the reality is, I have it so good, and I know that. A husband that loves me, a roof over my head, food to eat, a healthy family, my husband has a full time job, cars that run, clothes, and the list goes on. I'm spoiled really and I need to remember that.
