1st victory = Significant Other on board!
This was the first weekend that involved a payday and YNAB. After telling my wife every dollar is already assigned a task, she's on board with checking the budget rather than seeing what's in our bank account!!! No impulse purchases for both of us! She still working on how to input transactions on her phone, but baby steps! We'll get there!
Fabulous! Am not there yet. 2.5 years of YNAB and just this month I cleared my debts (except our house mortgage). I have found that being able to share my progress has changed the financial conversation between my husband and I. YNAB has given me those words to use to make the conversations easier....like 'this is my priority' and 'I'm putting aside money now/each month for when XYZ falls due'.
I still hold out hope to get him on board!Reply
