December turned out to be a pleasant surprise! We really buckled down and stuck to our budget, and were rewarded with the ability to pay extra towards the car payment. We did a lot of traveling and family events, and found ways to get presents for the kids and each other on the cheap. I hit some amazing sales at Target and my husband pounced on some clearance stuff at work to make for a very fun Christmas.
In doing our January budget this morning, I noticed that our net worth has increased by almost $49,000 since last January! I’m sure you’re thinking – budgeting on New Years morning, really? But when you know where your money’s going, and you can see debt going down and net worth going up, you actually look forward to it!
