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!
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.
If you’ve followed along with my blog posts, you’d know that one of my favorite things to do is travel, and I find it even more rewarding when I can do it well within my budget. Having a baby hasn’t changed that, and we’re excited to be planning our first vacation as a family of three!
We might have a new baby at home, but we still very much enjoy going out to eat on occasion (especially when I’m too exhausted to even THINK about cooking something). A trend I’ve been noticing in a lot of the new restaurants in town is that they’re cash-only.
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.
