A glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel...

Our finances have been disastrous lately...thankfully I'm seeing a teeny tiny glimmer of light at the end of the debt tunnel.  If all goes well in the next week (knock wood) we should catch up our mortgage payment. We had been paying it a few days after the due date (during the grace period).  It's a big weight lifted knowing its being paid a few days early.  This will help put us back on track and allow us to pay off bills without wondering if we will have enough money to get us through the month. I am going to try the envelope method this month.  I tried the jar method a year or two ago and it did not go well.  So I'm hoping to have better luck this time.

Next, a huge huge thanks to Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily for the awesome zippered pouch.  I love love love it :) I'm keeping my extra cash and change in it. It will serve as a reminder of all your great financial advice and help me to spend wisely!

Wishing everyone a great week!

Good luck getting your budget back on track! I know it can be hard, but you're right, it'll be a relief! I'm glad that you've found a use for the pouch! :)
