  • Nope, because we budget and know exactly where our money goes.

  • I am pretty good at budgeting but around Christmas I somehow misplaced $150. I dont know if I spent it or paid a bill twice. So I usually know where it goes, but I dont understand why everyone wants to take our money from us lol.

  • So at the end of 06' my husband and I were completely debt free. At the end of 08' we had $20,000 in debt. Heck yes I wondered where the money went. How the heck do you just wrack up $20,000 worth of debt? The worst part is, when we tried to remember what we'd spend it on, we could only account for $8000 of it. Sad huh?

    AT the beginning of 09' we started Dave Ramsey's get out of debt plan. With a written budget I know longer wonder where my money goes- I told it where to go and that's where it went. We're about 5 weeks away from paying off the last of our debt. Never again will we wonder where the money is going.

  • Nope, we have a written budget and use cash for pretty much everything. We know exactly where our money goes.

    Of course I often wonder where my tax money goes, but that's another story.
