It may be life changing but I never said it was fast

We had a date tonight. A date at Border's, with our lap top and a spreadsheet that King Daddy put together will all of our outstanding bills. It looks bleak. It won't always look bleak. In fact we are just two months away from better than bleak. But it still sucks to know that you may be make more money that you ever have in your enitre adult life and it isn't good enough.
It isn't good enough right now, but in six months, we will have a savings account, with money in the bank! We are taking control of our money, together. In the past I had been dealing with the finances. Somewhere along the way I let everything slide. It must have been those really really bleak days last summer.
We have a game plan and our marching orders. So look out bleakness, here we come!

I know what you mean, my hubby and I just recently got out of debt and we finally have a savings account, it feels great. I don't ever want to be back where we were with our finances, if we can't afford it now, we don't get it, this was VERY hard for me at first. Good luck.

Oh yes, I'm quite familiar with 'bleak'. Our financial situation is headed from bleak to dire, unfortunately. Good for you in taking charge of things and I hope everything works out great! :)
