Budgeted the entire month...before it even started!
I meant to post this last month when it happened for the very first time in our 29 year marriage, but I forgot.
We budgeted our entire month's bills before the month even started!
And then we paid them long before they were due!
And then we did it again for August!
And we're on track to do it again every month going forward!
We bought YNAB in October 2007 (yeah, you read that right!) and then either half used it, failed using it, stopped using it, actively avoided using it, or knew we needed to use it, but never worked together to actually use use it.
That changed a while back, and it took some work, but we finally did it!! We even have an emergency fund, small as it is, but it is a huge step in the right direction!
In addition, we've made HUGE steps in paying off debt that's been lingering for far too long.
For anyone struggling...there is a light at the end of the tunnel and YNAB can absolutely help you get there!
