This year, we are aiming to spend more quality time together and to stick on our family’s budget. We want to be more intentional in using our time and our resources this year.
And yes mommies, we’re thinking of more creative ways to lessen our family’s spending since we are currently living on a single income stream, but we don’t want to sacrifice family quality time.
Do you have goals especially “financial” goals for this year?
As a mom, wife, freelancers or small business owners we have goals in different roles and hats that we have in our lives.
Christmas season is not only the busiest but also a month of big purchases. Lalo na maraming sale weekly, we moms, are tempted to visit all those sale events and grab the best buy items.
Especially here in our country, Christmas is celebrated as early as the month of September. November pa lang may Christmas Parties na di ba?
But, Christmas season shouldn’t put us in debt after all the festive celebrations and purchases we had.
My husband and I have been through a lot of financial trials and lessons. And we promised ourselves that we will try our best not to forget the lessons we learned back from those season of huge financial stress – debts, piled up bills on due dates, savings drained, being scammed, unwise business decisions and a lot more..
One of our financial goals is to live within our means, so we can also honor God in managing our resources, stay out of debt and live a legacy of good financial stewardship to our son.
Mommies, when do you usually shop for your little one’s items? do you have a habit of checking his milestones and look for items that suits his or her current stage? or do you also do an inventory of your child’s baby essentials regularly?
I usually make a list of Zee’s items to remind me of the things we need to replenish, but when “momnesia” strikes, there were days like “hala, wala na palang diaper and wipes?!” (hehe!)
On our quest to live more simple, practical, frugal and intentional.. I’ve observed that “practical-frugal people” have many things in common.
“Letting go of the things I cannot change, focusing on the things that I can control”
