Taking control of my money

Postby mld » Mon Oct 20, 2008 6:50 pm

Have decided sharing my financial life with others is probably not a great idea, thanks for all the encouragement, I needed it more than you know.

MLd, they sound like completely *achievable* goals, as long as you keep up the discipline!

Good luck! And keep us updated.

Yay for you! Learning to say "no" while everyone around you says "yes" is one of the most powerful tools you will learn. That's awesome!

Hey, it's okay to say it won't work for you. Just send him a Vegas themed birthday card. Good work.

Only a good budget and reduced expenditure can get you out of trouble. Best of luck.

Those are all BIG victories - and you've managed to have them within a month or so of starting to FOCUS. Good for you!

Just leave the cash at home too, it's very hard to spend without any means of buying. :D
