Thanks for all the birthday wishes for Sally! It felt great to feel loved by so many awesome peeps, especially when we’re in this big city away from our families.
Johnny and I are very excited to share a new series we are kicking off this year about maximizing your budget! A couple months ago, Johnny and I took a long hard look at what we and this site are all about. Everything came back to keeping a budget. In fact, all other financial goals hinge on that one simple (terrible) word: BUDGETING. So because we believe it’s so fundamental, central, and frustratingly simple to having financial success, we wanted to take each month to focus on a different aspect of budgeting and how to own it.
Every month we’ll do an in-depth post that covers the following categories:
- January: Debt Payoff
- February: Eating Out
- March: Vacations
- April: Baby/Children Supplies
- May: Groceries
- June: Home and Personal Spending
- July: Retirement and Savings
- August: Entertainment
- September: Clothing
- October: Gifts
- November: Internet and Cable
- December: Non-Discretionary
By the end of the year, we hope to have one ginormous, helpful resource that people can look to when they’re figuring out their specific budgets. And we’re starting off this month with Debt Payoff, so anyone who’s trying to tackle debt in 2015 can use this resource from the start of this year. That post is coming up on Friday so stay tuned! Any other topics you’d like to see covered in 2015? We’d love your input!
