Is it just me, or does anyone else find that the more money they have, the more they spend?
We just moved recently and our biggest motivating factors were :
- 20 mins closer to DH's work, so could save a fair chunk of petrol money
- substantially reduced rent, $60 less per week!
So we should really be rolling in it, sort of! But no. DH gets paid monthly and its the 20th and we are already down to bare basics cash wise. I mean, I budget to be able to pay all our bills in cash (thank god!) so we are in no danger there, but there is NO spare cash. Nothing!
I don't understand! Of course, it doesn't help having a DH go out on his day off work and spend a small fortune (thanks very much for taking a cash advance off the credit card....ggrrrr!)
Anyway I hope I'm not alone in this. It just bites. I hate not having savings, it makes me feel reallly uncomfortable.
