Day 8 #balanceyoselfmama : Finances
Thankfully this is a topic that doesn’t bring on too much stress. My husband is a Director of Finance for his job so that transfers over to our household. For the past couple of years, we’ve made a budget at the beginning of the year and then checked quarterly to see if we were on target. It has helped us travel, save, and buy a house.
I was working as a teacher up until this school year so we have taken a little bit of a pay cut. However, it’s worth it so I can stay home. I’m pretty sure I go over on my budget for things for Reya since I buy her way too many things on Etsy and Amazon but it evens out since we haven’t been traveling as much.
I know this is such a stressful topic for many so I’m grateful to say this is one of the easier ones for me regarding self care.
