Budget is a four letter word!!
That's why we prefer to call it a cash flow plan. I can't take credit for that it's a Dave Ramsey thing. All that being said, I worked out the "cash flow plan" for October. what a giant pain in my butt!
I think that DH is allergic to the check book or something. I the non college graduate, that never took an accounting class (unlike some members of this family) have to play checkbook and CFP(okay its a budget it sucks and its a pain)
I know that now that I have it all figured out and the numbers all work and I have planned for everything I can think of then...
A) The kids will need some outrageously expensive thing for school (and they need it yesterday)
B) I will break something, become deathly ill with something that only really expensive medicine that my insurance company wont cover will fix, I will break/lose a tooth
C)The car will die
D) Some long forgotten medical bill will pop back up and they will demand payment 3 months ago
E)All the really cute fabric that they only have just a little of will go on sale at a great price but I only budgeted $40 for fun things.
So I am waiting for the earthquake, flood, tornado, typhoon or other disaster to strike any time now that the CFP(budget) is done and printed off.
