It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I’ve been really busy working on some other projects and just haven’t made the time that I should have.

That’s a big problem in our modern society it seems. We rush from place to place without slowing down. This can have an adverse affect on our finances also.

We can get so busy that we don’t take time to focus on our spending. It’s so much easier to just order out than to cook a meal after a busy day. Or you go ahead and buy something at the store because you’re sure there’s money in the account for it, but it’s been two months since you actually balanced the account.

Next thing you know you, you’re bouncing checks again and running up the credit card that you swore was just for emergencies. Your finances are spiraling out of your control once again.

Finances are just something that won’t take care of themselves. You have to actively manage them. Sure with time you get on a routine that makes it easier, but you never get to te point where you can just leave them on auto pilot. Make sure you’re setting aside time every week to check in with your money.
