Whiteboard Success!!!!

March 23rd, 2017 at 03:28 am

The hub left to go back to work today. He was feeling a little better, almost done with his meds. Hopefully he will continue to be on the mend and will be able to finish this hitch ok.

Recently, I posted about purchasing a white board to help keep our household budget on track. My thought was keeping it visual would serve as a reminder to stick to the plan.

I am happy to report that, for the first time that I can remember, there is ample funds left in the household account to live on for the remainder of the month!! There MAY even be extra left at the end of the month. WOW. It WORKED.

Needless to say, I will continue to keep the budget on the whiteboard!

DD2 and I are going to visit DS and his family this weekend and have permission to take Z and X with us. Should be a fun trip. No word on whether or not BM has had the baby. We did learn that she and baby daddy #4 pleaded guilty to all charges this last go around. If they are caught together again they will be charged with felonies. Given that they are still together as a couple and about to have a baby, its just a matter of time. In the meantime, thankfully Z and X are still safe and part of our lives! (We have learned BM and her mom have devised a new plan to get the kids back- hopefully the system sees through it, but we just never know)...

I am getting really excited for Hawaii...only 28 days to go....

    Congrats on your low tech budget tracking method. I, too, had trouble keeping track of how much money for spending in certain categories until I started using a 4 x 6 index card with all that information on it. I draw a line when a bill has been paid and make various notes. Because it is just a little card, it is easy to carry around. I don't have a smart phone and can't afford to get one, so an app does not work for me.

    Good work! Some folks need a visual, and it seems that your DH is one! I get my visual on a spreadsheet, but then, it's only me.

    I really like the idea. My DH would like it too.
