I smiled a big smile when I saw this poster on Pinterest the other day, thinking thank goodness I'm not the only one who has had this thought!
When I've been busy "investing" in my house, working on a room or multiple rooms, my clothing budget has seen big cutbacks. And on the other hand, when I've had to restock the wardrobe, there have been freezes in the home improvement department. It's real and keeps my family's budget on track...really so important, particularly these days. I definitely believe it's wise to live within your means, avoid the credit card trap and to treat savings as another "expense" you account for on a monthly basis.(The current national savings rate is a mere 3.8 percent, and that just isn't going to do it in the long run!)
Here's to knowing our limits and being just fine with them. It's a rare person who can have it all, all the time...and to think otherwise sets us up for all kinds of issues. IMO.
