Have you ever had one of those weeks (or month) when you feel like you’ve spent too much money? Or everyone is trying to get money from you somehow?
Why? because it just seems that everything is working against us.
I’ll be truthful here.. This month has been brutal:
- We just found out that we owe quite a bit of money to the IRS (we own a business and are required to fill taxes by 3/15)
- I got into a accident and have to pay a $500 deductible.
- We have THREE birthdays this month– which just so happen to be one day after the other.
- Just got a new property tax bill (special assessment bill that was made after we bought our house)
and don’t forget everyday living bills!
Even though we try to live as frugal as possible– the truth us, I sometimes end up going to the store without coupons, paying too much for Toilet paper or spending $6 for a pack of Hebrew National hotdogs (yes, that happen)
I guess my point is, even though there are bad months where it is hard to be frugal — I feel blessed that we are even able to afford the things that we can. While bills might pile up, we are grateful to be able to pay them. All because we were frugal most of the time and always watched where our money was going.
So, take a break. It’s okay if you can’t be frugal this month. 🙂
