We have all experienced it: the stages of budgeting. The ups and downs of trying to get a few weeks worth of finances in order. These are the 10 stages of trying to budget.
When you decide that: “This is the day I’m going to do the budget!”
Trying to remember all your payments, how often you grocery shop…
and how much milk cost.
Spending three hours crunching numbers
But it’s done…. And it’s beautiful!
Then your hubs come home and says he wants to buy beer for his whole section.
Then you explain the budget for this month…. $150 in beer isn’t in there…
Hubs explains that he’s already promised the guys…
Daughter comes home from school excited with Birthday party invitations for this weekend… and next.
You realize your budget is less than an hour old and it is already obsolete.
You sit down to updated the budget to include beer and birthday toys.
And finally you get it done. For now.
