Simple Pleasure of the Day: Budgets

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" post
Money management has always been a stressful thing.  I don't care if you're a GAZILLIONAIRE or poorer than dirt, money has and always will come with stress.  To help calm my green paper nerves, I crunched some numbers by creating a full-on-written-down-and-not-just-off-the-top-of-my-head budget with monthly, occasional, and yearly expenses.  Just seeing these numbers all in one place has me wishing this SPOTD of budgets was something I had done a long time ago.

Getting anything down whether writing with a pen and paper or typing it out can:

- Highlight things you wouldn't have seen if it was still smooshed in your fatty brain full of stuff like this.

- Confirm how real and serious this topic is because keeping it inside your smooshed brain may push this topic into a fantasy everything's-gonna-be-ok place instead of a this-is-real-world-shit-that's-serious place.

- Relieve some space from your smooshed brain so you're not thinking so much about the stress of it all where not-so-stressful stuff now has room to stretch.
