Do you know where your money goes every month? Its so easy to use your credit card to purchase something, that one hardly knows how much one spends on random things. We don’t have any credit card debt, we pay off our card every month, but that doesn’t mean that I am spending responsibly… DH and I decided to try and do a “Cash-Only August” that will hopefully inform us about what we spend our money on. Our hope is that by paying cash, we will be more aware of what we buy…. it will make us stop and think about the money that we are spending… We don’t want to bring any new crap into the house this month….. Next step is to start getting rid of the stuff we don’t use and need… I have several bridesmaid dresses that are collecting dust…. one thing at a time!
