Respecting Financial Resolutions

Given all the different articles being written about Financial Resolutions for 2013, and I feel that I should show due respect for my resolutions, so here they are:

Possibly My 2013 New Year Resolutions (but don’t tell Mrs. C8j)

For those who cannot read my scratching on a napkin (yes an actual napkin), let me fill you in:

  1. Stop spending so much (on the kids and such)
  2. Be more honest about our money (if I am gonna get caught)
  3. Stop being so hard on myself about money, too much stress
  4. Write down every purchase & keep all receipts in a box, then burn the box in June

Hope this helps with your resolutions, but my guess I may not follow them too closely either.

Feel Free to Comment

  1. I suppose the real challenge is how big of a fire you’ll be having in June! *grin*

    Great post. I got a good laugh out of your light-hearted look at New Years resolutions.

    Nice resolutions. I particularly like the fact that you are going to keep all of your receipts and then burn the box in June. Does that mean you will stop tracking receipts after June?

      No, I won’t track them at all, just make it official in June 😉
