It seems every week and weekend is ongoing effort to do all I can, and hope for the best. Most projects (at home and work) are a work in progress. It’s all a matter of perspective though, and my goal lately is being happy and satisfied with my best.
Part of the reason I started this blog was to hold myself accountable. I have to admit that I’ve slacking lately on updating my own budget template and managing Mint .
The good news is that many of our bills are now managing themselves through autopay. Despite somewhat routine setbacks of unexpected bills, we’re still managing to save money and are on track with family goals. While it hasn’t given me a magic wand, this blog has given me a voice to share my thoughts and try to keep sight of my long term family goals . So even when I feel know there is more work ahead, I can still see the progress better.
My question is, if you’re reaching your goals, do you still need a budget?
What do you think?

Hi Sis – Kind of like the ebb and flow. I don’t think budgeting should help rather than add stress. When I’m on the road this goes out the window nearly entirely, but I definitely see that when one is tracking goals and assessing progress, that you are more likely to achieve what you are looking for.
