What do you know? Planning ahead really does save money!
Not that it’s always easy to do. We’ve been in a season of life for months on end that made it very difficult for me to wrap my brain around meal planning and careful shopping.
I even hesitate to say that we’re “back” to planning ahead on a regular basis. We’re just taking it a paycheck at a time.
If you have a rough season of life and you feel guilty about not saving the maximum amount of money, remember that it’s ok. We all go through ups and downs.
One thing I’ve found to be true is that you can’t let yourself wallow in guilt. Believe me, I’ve tried it.
When I finally stopped feeling sorry for myself (not to mention letting go of the guilt of being a frugal blogger who couldn’t be perfectly frugal all the time), that gave me the permission I needed to try again.
I'm Jamie, and I believe that you can build your savings, even when life is frustrating. Learn more.
