top 2 tuesday: Money

Happy Tuesday!!!

It's that time again for...


Top 2 Things I've Learned About Money

1. Money goes so fast!!! It really doesn't grow on trees lol. seriously, like I will go on a grocery run or to Target for bathroom/shower stuff and I end up spending $100 just like that. It seriously blows my mind!!! And I don't buy everything with a brand name. Some stuff yes, but definitely not everything. Or there will be days where Tony and I are out and we end up having to eat lunch out and dinner and gas etc and once again we end up spending another $100. It us just crazy!!!

2. Some things are definitely worth spending money on. Even when on a budget, you cannot give up everything in life to save money. You still have to be able to enjoy yourself, your spouse, your family. You cannot give up your sanity. I think vacations are definitely worth spending money on. I think certain superficial things are worth it too!! :) Every no and again, I think it is ok to buy a new outfit, even if it is brand name. Life is too short to give up everything for lack of money. You still gotta have fun!!! :)

I totally TOTALLY agree with you on both!! It seems like when you get married you should have more money, but you don't. Not at all. Haha!

It's amazing to me how fast money goes, I completely agree!

I definitely agree with you on No. 2! As much as we need to save money, you have to have a life and keep yourself happy! Saving isn't worth feeling miserable or deprived.

I have a hard time walking out of Target without spending $50-$100 too! haha My fiance and I also like to splurge on vacations. They're so worth the money and memories!
