What the eye doesn’t see January 2, 2008

Posted by The Mom in finances.

I read a suggestion on in the comments on Shelli’s blog about getting Quicken and recording EVERYTHING to do with our finances. I am scared. I sat down last night and started putting everything together and we are SO living beyond our means at the moment. M won’t hear a word about it but we can’t go on like this. I am not sure how we are going to go about trimming things back a little but we have to.

M is self employed and so there is no guaranteed income amount which makes things a little less predictable.

Part of the problem I am facing now is that M has gotten used to having take out twice a week and now I need to take one of them away… NOT going to be easy.
