There is something both scary and refreshing about accountability, no? Two weeks ago we shared three very personal posts about our budget, including where we ate out and how much we spent, our entire budget, and why we don’t use credit cards. While we typically don’t have any fear of sharing the truth, it’s sometimes easier to hold back on some of the raw details.
Some things seem too personal on the surface. But really, as we try to help others understand the power behind budgeting, the raw details might be just the thing someone needs to understand how to apply budgeting to their life. Not to mention the wise council this community provides in the comments.
So, we’re trying harder not to take for granted the details that have either held us back or brought us success over the past few years when it comes to budgeting.
There was so much great discussion in the comments of those posts linked above, it was confirmation for us that it’s the type of conversation this community wants to read and talk about.
Now that we’re halfway through September, I thought I would shift the conversation to give a look ahead at what we’re working on this month. Hopefully it will provide some context for when we post how we did at the end of the month.
