Happy Friday, everyone! I’m here today to dish on all things budgeting! Yep, that’s right. Today we’re talking money. Specifically — how you save it. And then spend it. I think sometimes people get nervous when the conversation goes toward talking about money. Why? Because our society is one the says “Hey! It’s none of your business!” And to a point – I get it. But when it comes to how we allocate money, save for big trips and plan out my funds for monthly expenses, I think it’s fair to share that information, especially if I think it can help someone else. Ya feel me? So let’s get right to how we budget our money + a fun holiday savings plan!
