4 Tips For Combining Finances And Budgeting In Marriage

May 11, 2017

Manage your budget and combine your finances in marriage the right way with 4 tips for combining finances and budgeting in marriage!

Getting married and combining your lives is a really exciting time! Moving in together, making decisions together, and sharing your day to day is just as dreamy as it sounds, until you start actually living it.

Don’t get me wrong I love my husband to the moon and back but love doesn’t prepare you for change or make it any easier. You quickly learn things about your significant other that you hadn’t even thought about before, like how they do the dishes, or how often they change their oil or even what trashcan they prefer. Now most of those little things don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

How To Stay Motivated With Your Financial Goals

April 24, 2017

It's hard to keep momentum going when you are working towards financial goals. In this post I'm talking about three different ways to stay motivated with your financial goals.

A couple weeks ago I sent out an email asking you guys what other blog posts you would want me to write about. This topic was one of the most asked for posts! Which, is completely fine by me because I can totally relate!

I think we all know the feeling of starting out on a new goal. You’re excited, hopeful and ready to work your butt off to get there! Much like running a marathon you start out going strong but then somewhere along the 5th mile you realize you still have a long way to go and you’re legs are already tired.

It’s at that point in running the race, that you can start to feel really hopeless. You see people ahead of you, then people that were behind you running ahead, and all the while your legs feel like they are going to give out at any moment.

It’s in those moments that you might want to quit, throw in the towel, turn around and head towards the nearest place that serves fries (or in the real life financial marathon go drop a hundred on some new clothes). But those moments are actually really important to have because in those moments is when the marathon really starts. continue reading
