Thanks, Sallie

I think what I was trying to say was that I had my priorities wrong. Just because it’s in the budget doesn’t mean that I should spend it when I have focused too much on myself and my selfish, lazy ways.
Much of my budget included luxuries for myself and then I would say there wasn’t enough this month to save. I was buying convenience food so I didn’t have to cook as much. Dining out was too high, having a housekeeper, etc.
I needed to refocus and reflect on why we never have enough money for savings. It became clear when I realized that when ever we got extra money, I just increased the amount of spending on those items that made my life easier.
Reflecting on my selfishness is tough and actually putting constraints on myself and sticking to it, even harder.
One day at a time……
