|Yep, sparkly shoes are the only red this |
bitch on a budget will be wearing.
Since I picked up my first book on personal finance (The Smart Cookies' Guide To Making More Dough: How Five Young Women Got Smart, Formed A Money Club, And Took Control Of Their Finances) planning & reviewing my personal finances has become a way of life.
14. Eliminated my monthly storage locker fees.
15. Sold $400+ of unneeded merchandise in our condo via Craigslist.
16. Started living more like a minimalist as I purged the 3 double-closets of my single-girl-days down to 1.5 and hopefully, to 1 by the end of the summer season... but all my favourite dresses will remain.For those of you who are thinking about getting started on managing your personal finances, I recommend the Smart Cookies books and of course, Bitches on a Budget by Rosalyn Hoffman. After all, red is a lovely colour for a pair of shoes… just not your bank statement.
As I celebrate a happy-budget-birthday to me, I'm curious to know... what has been your motivation to be back in the black?
