Lately I've been blog-hopping, trying to find my inner OCD housekeeper. I'm one of those people that will be *perfection* at something forever until something happens to throw me off a little bit and then procrastination sets in and eventually you would never know how great it used to be.
During the hopping I stumbled upon A Bowl Full of Lemons. I was perusing posts, finding inspiration for the various projects around the house I want to accomplish, but not feeling like REALLY jumping in.
Enter the latest weekly challenge, ORGANIZE YOUR FINANCES. The challenge is based mostly on the teachings of Dave Ramsey, who I already love, and is kind of geared toward those who are in debt. Thanks to Dave Ramsey and The Total Money Makeover, we became debt free when Emberly was a baby (well, until we bought our home). And I became the infamously frugal penny pincher. My husband even has a slur just for me :D
BUT, we do not have a fully funded emergency fund. And I've become a little lax, as proven by the late charge (gasp!) I just had on my gas bill. So I think it's a good idea to revisit my budget and follow along with the challenge anyway, to refresh my penny pinching skills! AND... I totally want to win the Clean Mama Printables gift pack :D
