Our lives are all about budgeting these days. Down to the dollar. My man works very hard to keep us afloat while I study full-time at university (and not work) so budgeting has helped us keep track of our spendings.
It sounds silly, but I have never seen the "point" in it before. But after sitting down one day and working out what we spent (roughly) each week it became clear that we need to keep a written record of what needs to be paid/bought and what we want. We haven't really saved anything, but we haven't gotten a better grasp of large bills that were over due and things will look up soon. Our ultimate goal is to buy a house in 2014.
Being a grown up is hard sometimes. I guess mum was right when she said dont rush to grow up.
