Let's talk real life. I have been HORRIBLE with spending the last two days.
Do you want to know what I'm doing at this exact moment. Waiting in line at McDonalds. Yes.
Do you want to know what happened yesterday? I bought a $40 dollar tub of eyelash cleaning pads that are supposed to make eyelash extensions last longer. And guess what....I didn't have enough cash in my beauty envelope to cover it.
I grabbed cash from another envelope to cover my full visit to the salon yesterday.
Yesterday I got home and my cash envelopes were a mess. I forgot to ask for receipts for two different purchases that I made, one of them Starbucks.
I had to try and remember what cash I used for what purchases. I was scrambling trying to update my expense tracker.
Do you know how I deal with days like today and yesterday? I go home, pull out my crazy cash envelopes, and I deal with it the best I can.
I clean up my envelopes, write down what I can remember, and start fresh with my paycheck on the 5th.
Life happens, you get busy, you forget to get receipts, you overspend. But you know what, it will be ok! You pick up your feet, and keep pushing forward.
Don't let small hiccups on your financial journey push you off track.
Today, it's a Big Mac (don't judge me) kind-of day.
I'm going to kill it tomorrow!
