Budgeted for the first part of May today - first time I've budgeted into the next month! Age of $ has gone from 7 days to 25 days and I've only been using a few months. Loving it! So glad I have one less thing to stress about during this stressful time.
That’s fantastic especially given all the craziness out there at the moment! Congrats!
I personally love the feeling of those wins from time to time: finally being able to budget into the next month, finally seeing a debt balance disappear, finally saving enough for X. Makes all the effort feel rewarding.
Care to share what you did differently to get to this point?
Thanks! Nothing that hasn't been said better elsewhere - just overall not living with my head in the sand because I couldn't deal emotionally with money. Actually paying attention to what was automatically being debited to my credit card. (Stopped 6-8 music/channel/etc. subscriptions I fotgot I was paying for. Sheesh.) Planning ahead for major expenses instead of waiting for the "extra" paycheck to come along. (You know, the one you get twice a year when you're paid biweekly.) I think not spending that "extra" paycheck outside the budget gave me the greatest gain on AoM. And I am very fortunate that, as a teacher, I haven't lost any income.
