New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year! This year is going to be a great year – I can feel it now!! I am going to get healthy, eat healthy, spend as much time as I can with the kiddos, and budget. I HAVE TO BUDGET…

I have Quicken, I am an unashamed coupon cutter, I look for sales, I do all of the above and then some, but I cannot seem to save $$$. I created a fabulous spreadsheet when my husband thought we were not allocating our funds properly…he was shocked as well (not at the fact that I created the spreadsheet, but that we shell out more money than we ever thought).

It is not too late though (I keep repeating that over and over) – I am going to turn us around…I am going to actually look at the cool graphs that Quicken offers (that I swore I had to have and would use) and analyze them. I am going to ignore the Shop It To Me, Rue La La, Gilt Group, HauteLook, and Shop Style email alerts (unless of course it is a final sale…). I am going to clip coupons with a fervour and actually use them.

I am going to log my ups and downs, my great deals and my savings. Here I go…wish me luck…I will need it BIG TIME!!
