james and i started a budget a couple of weeks ago. we have two mortgages right now because of my house in kansas city, so we have to limit ourselves in some other areas. ive been amazed how God has blessed us since we started the budget and how easy it has been to find fun things to do, inexpensive ways to eat amazing food at home, and even overnight trips where we are offered places to stay with friends.
one of the things that has surprised me most is how far my spending money goes when i know how much i have for the month- and what i choose to spend it on. i was sitting at the table, looking at the $5 flowers that i divided up and put all over the house and i realized that they were the best thing i could have bought with $5. a luxury item in the same catagory as diamonds- a wonder of nature.
