The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of March

How was your March? How did you do and where did you land? Share your Goodness or Madness of your March. What was Good, Bad and Ugly for you? Here's mine...

- used only cash all month and had several zero spending days
- used coupons and saved over 60% of my normal grocery budget
- cooked what we had and ate leftovers
- couponed and got cheap and free items (check previous blogs)
- donated items to fire victims and to Savers and received coupon
- continued to save via auto savings drafts

- two words: Library Fines (Boooooooooooo!!!)
- was very disorganized
- was haphazard with my budget sheet (*Gasp* Bad girl...I'm human)

- Unexpected car the tune of almost $400!!

GOALS for April
- continue to build my businesses, accept new contracts
- complete DIY home projects
- finish decluttering efforts
- have at least 10 zero spending days (not including bills)
- start saving to my Travel fund again

March was kind of a whirlwind. I remember being in Kroger way too many times…but I was hooked on finding deals, especially now that my printer is working. The deals and free items are so worth it!! I'm buying what we use and I saved so much in my budget (I did calculate that much).

This month did bring about some financial realizations and in some areas, I really need to step up my game. I’m always looking for a new opportunity, but I need more focus in securing them. That will change in April. Writing it down and making it happen!!

Life is such a great gift!! I encourage everyone to live it to your fullest potential ALL THE TIME!! Enjoy it, stop worrying and smile!!
