It’s Working

There is finally a noticeable difference in my credit card balances, the budget is working.  A slow and steady change, as much as I yearn to see dramatic effect, I’m quite pleased.  Increasing my weekly fun money to $150 has improved my life too.  I don’t have to keep track of every penny (although I clearly enjoy doing so), I can feel freer socially, and I can afford to eat more virtuously (back to the farmer’s market).  I still have to retain some discipline – I haven’t been to the movies since July, nor can I indulge in the Comme Des Garcons at H & M.  But it’s worth it to see shrinking bills and enjoy my vacation without worry.  The budget works.
