This is a new beginning for our family...our son is playing football and our two oldest daughters are signed up for homeschool ballet and gymnastics, all of the oldest three also have weekly horseback riding lessons. We are entering into a time where we once again need to keep an eye on the budget... no more eating out or going to random yard sales just for fun. I know that some families don't allow their children to do extra activities but we feel that it's important for them to explore their passions. We don't have a lot of wiggle room in out budget but a little and we're willing to spend some of it on them!!
My biggest challenge in finding extra money in our budget is finding things to cut that won't "hurt" too much. My husband just has to have his HD cable package to watch football, so cutting that won't work. I know my biggest spending falls into the $5 and $10 here and there spending. I need to stop...I do so good for a long time and then I start spending again. My first goal is to post every day where, why, and how much money our family has spent. I want to see where our money goes and see if you all can find some things to cut out of our budget!!
Anybody else up for the challenge of finding extra money in the budget??
