I love numbers. I find connection with numbers everyday. I love to see them in sequence, I love to write them down. I love to enter numbers into excel spreadsheets just to see the numbers balance out. I went to college to major in Accounting and just recently, I went back to work full time in a career in the banking industry.
What I don't love is......
Finances. More specifically, personal finances.
I see the irony in this all the time.
I get so stressed out when it comes to my own finances. I always put off doing them and it creates a stressful time in my home.
I have been following to amazing Jordan over at funcheaporfree for a few months now, and I am inspired by her-especially since she also doesn't like to deal with finances either. I am still deciding on when I will get her Budget Bootcamp program. But, in the meantime, I will be working on having a consistent routine with my money.
At work, we have an evaluation every 6 months. Within this time, we do 90-day action plans. After sitting down with my supervisor and planning out my focus for the next 90 days, I am getting excited about implementing this in my personal life.
The three places I am going to start with is:
|this may or may not be a picture of my current system|
- Setting up finance "appointments" with myself
Once I get my initial plan together, I'll share. I know....lucky you ;)
Do you agree with my three areas that will help me? What other ones would you do instead?
