So, my original post, HERE, was titled “Spending Inefficiencies.” I would like to recant that title as I don’t think I have a spending problem, per say, but a shopping one. :)
I recently read The Everygirl’s Post “I Cut 5 Unnecessary Spending Habits for 30 Days and This is What Happened” and realized a few things:
I drink the office coffee every morning, have amassed over $100 worth of Starbucks gift cards (thanks FIL) and can usually expense a coffee here and there as I travel or meet with prospective clients. So I’m good here.
With a 2 year old at home and one on the way, frivolous dining out is a thing of the past. Plus our sweet new kitchen makes cooking really enjoyable and the hubs has really taken on this new hobby, which I love being the beneficiary of!
I meal plan every Sunday and create a corresponding grocery list. Check!
My company pays for my phone - score!
Reviewing this made me think I already do a pretty damn good job of cutting unnecessary spending habits. What I really realized was I need help with my efficiencies of spending.
