Any time I don’t post in a couple weeks it’s a sign that I am failing miserably on my goal. I basically quit working on being more frugal and resourceful because it’s really hard.
It’s hard to shop at 5 different stores to get the best deals. It’s annoying to take my kids out of the car and into a cart, only to grab chicken breasts, and then back into the car, and go to the next store for grapes.
I’m struggling to write down all my spending. I forget to keep the note pad by the door and handy.
I think about the number I just spent somewhere, and say “okay write down 13.74 when I get home.” Then I don’t.
I look at the banking accounts online never.
Mostly I am admitting this so I have some accountability. I have to reflect on it a bit, and re-dedicate myself to the goal.
