The hardest part of getting started in budgeting is deciding how much to spend and how much to either save or pay towards debt. It’s the age-old question in the budgeting world…and you’ve probably wondered the same thing!
I think we all can relate to the struggle behind wanting to spend because hey, we’re only human, but yet wanting to save because we know that those big goals aren’t going to fund themselves. So, how do we balance this? How do we move forward with our financial goals without completely depriving ourselves of all fun?
In this episode I’m sharing my very best tips for finding balance, learning to shop guilt-free, prioritizing savings, and continuing to enjoy your life along the way.
In this episode, I share about:
How to deal with the initial freak out feeling like you’ll never be able to spend money or have fun again if you’re living on a budget
How to work through your jealousy + contentment issues
How to learn to enjoy the little things in life
Why it’s so important to budget in fun money
Why I believe in guilt-free shopping while you’re on a budget
Suggestions for frugal family fun
Why completely cutting out your spending money could actually hurt you more than it could help you
Why saving/paying off debt still has to be the first priority
How saving money can become fun
How cutting back on the silly little things can add up to you living your big dreams
Why saving money is just as much about the present as it is about the future
“Balancing having fun and actually making progress on your financial goals, is a balance that we all struggle with.”
“I want you to budget in that fun money because I want you to enjoy your life.”
“Saving isn’t just for the future, it is also for the present.”
