the swing of things?

Is there really such a thing? Maybe. I seem to be a bit wishy washy (which is what I accuse hubby of, ahem). I pick things up and just as I get good at them and really happy, I just stop. Really? Why? Who knows. Well, I've done it with our budget and my grocery shopping and my house and and and and...... Well, we'll start with the budget and my grocery shopping. I'm using The Budget Kit because it has lots of great "forms" and lists and all that jazz.

I've also started a price book. I've meant to do this for years, but am just now getting to it. So I'm keeping track of the prices of things we normally buy at the stores we normally shop at. This way I know where the best prices are. I'm also tracking our spending on absolutely everything. Now, I know that there are lots of websites or software programs that do all this for you. Just enter and go. However, I like the old fashioned way of writing it all down. Plus it's all right there at arm's reach and easy for us all to understand. Wish me luck! lol

I've got more planted. I've got more started. I've just got more. lol And more to come in a couple of days.
