I know I shouldn’t, but I’m having a mini panic attack about money. My car lease is about to end and we have a big, gaping hole of debt ahead of us that we need to pay off. I know you’re not supposed to talk publicly about money, but I’m nothing if not brutally honest on this blog, and my readers know I reveal warts and all. And even though we should be living more than comfortably, I’ve been feeling a little out of control of the whole “living within my means” thing lately.
Over the next year, the debt will even out and some major expenses will have been paid off. We’ll be able to put more money away and have a nice little retirement nest egg (something we’ve both been actively working toward – chipping away slowly at that item on the bucket list) securely in check. That’s one thing I’ve never let slide.
For now, I just need to focus on getting through one day at a time, staying well under budget, and stop trying to keep up with whatever Joneses are out there. Because honestly – they’re mostly in my mind.
