Budget Vs Necessities

My budgets are tight, my life is dull, but I will make it. If I keep doing what I am doing, I will be debt free by October 22 of this year.

As long as I stay on budget that is. Therein lays the problem: life doesn’t like sticking within budgets.

Certain things I can deal with, such as dealing with no propane in my main system. To fix it now would cost too much, so stick to the small bottles it is.

Yet there are other small things which need to be replaced, small things that don’t cost too much, but they do add up.

Such as the bottom sheet on my bed, it has a hole in it and this is not something that I can repair, I will need a new bottom sheet at least. 

Then there is the window washer fluid that I need to buy for the truck. Again, little things that can’t wait, yet are not in the budget.

I have no choice but to buy them and try to make my budget work. The real frustrating thing is that I don’t know what my paycheque will be until I get it . . . next week.

I do my shopping on the weekend and buy as it I am going off into the wilderness for the workweek. This is to conserve fuel (and eliminate unnecessary spending).

I will somehow make this work and figure out what necessities I need right now, and which ones I can put off. One way or another I will make Total Debt Freedom Day.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
