animalhaus: Home Improvement
Speaking of budgeting: We have really been pinching pennies in anticipation of the holidays. I have been keeping my family budget online at Pear Budget and am in love with that service. The first couple months shocked me! BIG TIME! What I THOUGHT I was spending on the different categories (what I had budgeted as the max amount) vs. what I WAS spending after all the receipts were entered was not a pleasant surprise. For example–we spent $250 more on EATING OUT than I even remotely imagined we did. And we spent SEVERAL HUNDRED dollars more on groceries than I even wildly imagined. After adding up all the little receipts for trips to the groceries “to get one thing” (and ending up with $50 in the cart or more), it was a very unpleasant reality trip. However, having it there in black and white (and a lot of RED)allowed me to see why we have so little money in savings and left in checking at the end of the month after Hubby gets paid. Each month I’d lament that he makes a decent salary, where is it going?! Now I can see where.

Frugally Blonde: Reducing Anxiety about Money
As we have drastically reduced our grocery bill and other spending, we have been been able to save significantly more money. Saving money has enabled us to build an emergency fund, which gives huge peace of mind. Although a job loss or a huge car repair would never be easy, having some savings gives automatic hope.

Giving increased attention to spending also required me to monitor our budget more and more precisely. Especially for the last few months, since I started using Pear Budget, I have felt that every common expense in our lives is accounted for. I don't have to worry when a bill arrives, since I know the money is set aside in our budget.

Even though our budget has always been tight and will probably remain so, I feel that we are in control. I know that every choice we make about money is done intentionally, and not carelessly. I also know that if necessary we could spend even less than we do now. We may have to get there slowly, but we are moving toward our goals. That is an empowering thought!

You can create custom categories, enter receipts, and review your spending from any computer.
