The word strikes fear into my heart. I have enjoyed earning and SPENDING my money without much though these past few months. Of course there is a recession so tonight we sat down with a piece of paper and did a budget. Gulp. We get to save a lot of money every month...no really it's true. The problem with saving all that money is that I cannot go off and happily spend money on the sales without much thought...but I cannot wait to see that bank balance rise so I guess save it will be. Anyway it is only a 6 month plan for now, even the kids are on board and they will receive a monthly allowance which they need to use for clothes, toiletries and socialising...right now they think it is awesome, let us see what they think in two months time!!! Growing up.......sucks.
