We did one full month. Our first month.
- In our first month we were able to put aside our $1000 emergency fund.
- Pay off my student loan
- Pay on our Van's loan
- Spend less than $80 on groceries for the month
- managed to use cash for everything that is not on automatic withdraw
I know I should see this as a HUGE accomplishment. But I have to constantly remind myself of that. I have to look at this list and say "look how much we accomplished in only one month". Otherwise, I look at all the changes we have made in our lives and feel depressed that this is our new life for a while.
So I choose to look at the list and remind myself we are making progress!
