Spending Freeze

In an effort to pay some bills, including a whopping one from when I was in the hospital, pregnant with the babe, we are having a spending freeze. If it isn’t necessary, it isn’t gonna be bought. So far we are doing really well, not even one dollar has been spent on anything other than things that we actually need. When you are really knuckling down, you realize that not much is actually necessary. Shoes for the kids, yes, a quick run into the thrift store, not so much. It’s not like we spent much before, but now we are being really, really careful. We want these bills to be a thing of the past, so that is a priority. It’s kind of addictive, being able to put another dollar or two in the jar/savings account. They grow slowly, but every penny counts, right? I do have a couple of other commitments that will require a little bit of spending, but the commitments were made before the freeze, so I will still hold to those. I’m really excited about this, it doesn’t feel like a hardship at all, because I know how much better I will feel when we are completely out of debt.
