-A new pair of black flats for work.
-Replenish my ancient makeup (I've literally worn a hole through the bottom of my 2 year old blush container)
-Buy some night cream as I'm starting to notice wrinkles on my neck :( (Although I fear, it may be too late!)
This is real progress given my previous behavior was to just go out and buy whatever item I needed. Our new budget is set up so that we each get spending money (aka "Mad Money") weekly. This week my Mad Money went to send my Mom a Mother's Day gift, so maybe next week I can get something off of my wish list. If our gift fund was built up a little bit, my Mom's gift would have come from that but we're just starting those funds now.
For anyone out there thinking they can't do it, YOU CAN! You just have to make changes. I'm actually getting excited about the changes we're going through. There are challenges that I look forward to succeeding at -
- Can we afford groceries on what we've budgeted?
- What fun things can we come up with to do with our limited weekly date night funds?
- Where are we going to find more snowflakes along the way to help us move even faster?
