First win 12 days into my free trial

So, now having given every dollar a job, when I think about going to Subway or buying a new book to read or spending hundreds on a new pair of glasses I don't. Instead I think "It's not in my budget, I can't spend money on this." And I have canned veggies or fresh, whichever is in the refrigerator. I put the book on a wish list and add it to my budget next month. I dig out my back-up pair of glasses and admit that they are just fine for now.

    Way to go! I have a single distance prescription with a something to correct astigmatism and have been happy with Luke 8 out of 10 orders from Zenni optical.

  • Hi Forest Green Wildebeest !

    Welcome to YNAB and to the forum! :)

    Saying 'no' to yourself can be such a hard habit to get into, but giving those funds more important jobs is definitely a win! If you have a second, take a look at creating a Wish Farm in your budget! :)
