Remember how I told you I saved a bunch on my recent Vegas trip?
Forget that, I just spent it & did what I said I wouldn't and I went waaaaay over my budget on a new expense.
Both Niki & I spent 3x as much as we were WILLING to spend and I have now compromised other plans I had for 2019.
Don't get me wrong, I do NOT regret my decision but both Niki and I now have to do all sorts of magic tricks to make things work out.
From now on we have to stick to the basics and NOT go against our instincts or cave in to peer pressure. We stick to our guns and if we don't have the cash on hand, we sure as hell do not make the purchase. Lesson learned.
So I was forced to make a new budget for 2019. Re-evaluated all the other expenses I had planned. Did a pros & cons list. And I feel confident I did the right thing and I can move forward knowing that 2019 will be my best year financially, emotionally, physically and soulfully. It'll be hard but nothing worth while is simply handed to you. Oh no, you gotta work for it! AND I'M ALL IN! -Penny
