“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

I Blew It!
Done did spent all the money for the entire month of January .. and it's only the 6th. Well, let me tell you a little secret .. come closer .. I spent the whole wad on PAPER :) That's right .. on a budget sheet! Yesterday the hubby and I even went to dinner .. bought pantry supplies ... filled up the truck with gas ... and signed me up for a gun safety class. Ya know what, not one bit of plastic was used .. er .. I mean nasty old credit. Not one swipe of a debit card either. Do you know it's a fact that if you spend cold hard cash or greenbacks that it's MORE PAINFUL mentally than using a bank card?? Do you also know that by SEEING how much cash is in your grocery envelope and taken out to spend lets you know how much is left to get by for the rest of the month. Not that easy with a debit card. I even forfeit getting cash back credit points just to 'suffer' using cash. How do you suffer for money? In a good painful way .. or in a I don't know 'til I get the bill type of way?
