So far on this journey you’ve estimated income and expenses, created a budget, filled Envelopes, tracked spending, and had some fun! We hope you’re feeling encouraged on this journey so far, because you’ve done so much.
Earlier this week, we talked about why it’s important to make space for fun spending. So you planned a fun purchase, and then went out and made that purchase. Today’s task is simple, reflect on your fun spending.
- Reflect on your fun spending. How did it feel to spend on fun? Why is it important to you to have a Fun Envelope or category? How do you plan to keep fun spending in your budget going forward?
- Share your thoughts with the community in the comments!
Note for couples: Reflect on what it might mean to keep fun spending in your budget for each person as an individual — and also for you both as a couple. (Hello, Date Night!) Feel free to make any adjustments as you learn about yourselves and each other.
