Last month I sat down and made a budget. Never felt it needed one before. I've been doing really good with it and today I checked my accounts. I have enough to either go 3 months without working or a very nice shopping spree. Lol. I'm just proud of myself and had to share with someone.

Our budgeting has made it so that I can probably take about 5 months off before I go back to work after having DD in June.

I'm with ya! I never thought we really needed to budget either but when we decided to finally buy a house, we decided budgeting would be a good idea so we could continue to build our savings. Less than a year later..we've added $16k to our savings account. Woohoo!!! Loving having a budget lol

I vote that you stick to your budget for one more month & tell your boss that come July 1 that you're taking a 6 month leave of absence!!!  LoL  OR you can put the EXTRA money in a savings account to cushion the blow when you have an unexpected emergency!!!  Just think what you can do by the end of 2013!!!  You're one SMART cookie!!!
