It’s been a long time, but we’re hitting the road again this summer! One of our favorite things to do is travel, and we’ve always made room for trips, both big and small, in our budget.
When it comes to balancing your budget, paying off your debt and building your savings are two of the most important things to think about. Let’s talk about saving today!
With all of the changes life can throw your way, it’s a good idea to review your budget from time to time to be sure that it still works for your current needs.
The first official day of summer has come and gone, and we’ve been having the weather to vouch for it! I’ve always preferred being hot to being cold, so I’ve never been one to complain, but having a little one at home who’s clearly uncomfortable has made us rethink our home cooling situation a bit.
When I review my budget each month, I try to make up for any discrepancies that may have occurred in the month prior, and I make adjustments as needed. Sometimes, though, sneaky little things make their way in and create a small leak in my finances, which can become a bigger problem if they’re ignored.
We all know how important it is to save money, but how do you become a successful saver? Now that we’re a family of three, saving for the future, as well as any unexpected events or emergencies, is more important to me than ever!
The signs are slowly starting to appear: the sun hangs around a little longer every day, the breeze is a little warmer, and the plants are looking a little greener… summer is on its way! We still have some time before it’s in full swing, so that makes now the perfect time to prepare your budget for any extra spending you might be doing in the next few months.
With a new baby at home, it can be tough for us to find time to spend together as a couple. With additional expenses that come with having a baby, it can be even tougher to fit a night out into our budget.
Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday. Have you planned anything special? I’m so excited to be celebrating for the first time this year! Like many holidays, you can celebrate without spending a small fortune and still brighten your mom’s day.
It’s no secret that adding a new member to your family can be a bit costly, and I’m here to tell you that I’ve learned firsthand just how true this can be. However, with a little planning and some smart shopping, you can get your budget ready for a baby and minimize the impact he or she will have on your bank account, and your new life as a family in general.
