Where the hell is this year going in such a hurry? The months are flying by! A minute ago I was saying goodbye to 30 and getting engaged. Next thing I know my brother's married and his son is on the verge of turning 2! I'm already knee deep into my semester and next thing I know it will be Halloween! Then Thanksgiving! Then Christmas! Then 2009!
Whew. I'm getting ahead of myself. But I am thinking a lot about the future. In just over six months, I'll be getting hitched. I have finances to get in order. A dress to buy. A party to plan. A trip to schedule... I just can't believe how quickly it's all coming. That's what she said.
All I know is that in order to accomplish all of this I will definitely need some money. Sadly, money is not something I have right now. So in order to save a bit and pay off those nasty credit card debts so I can start my marriage with a clean slate, I'm putting Buzz and myself on house arrest for the next six months. We're going to try our hardest to eat in instead of out, entertain ourselves on the cheap and generally lay low in order to get a head start on saving some funds. Anyway, wish us luck. Sorry there won't be any visits. Nor gifts. Nor miscellaneous spending. But you know how it is.
Has anyone else tried doing this? Any tips for us?
