There’s An App For That!

January 8th, 2010

The holidays are over and we’re back to the daily grind of work and school. Did Christmas get the best of you? If you are typical, you had a few unplanned events. Maybe Aunt Mildred’s family were a last-minute show for Christmas, and you had to run out and buy a few unplanned gifts. Pehaps you bought that special someone a flat-panel, Hi-Def TV, then at the register you were suckered into overpriced HDMI cables and an extended warranty. Days later you look at your account balance and wonder how you spent so much! No worries you think, because, in Ceasar’s infinite wisdom, he purposely planned a day of renewal and redemption a mere week after Christmas — New Years Day!

Unplugged: New Years Resolutions

So just as you promise to shed extra pounds due to all the cookies and egg nog you consumed (purely hypothetical situation! LOL), your New Years Resolution is to cut out the fat in the household budget. But New Years landed near a weekend, so you didn’t get a chance to grocery shop. Now you’ve eaten out for lunch all week and wonder if this New Years Resolution is sinking faster than the Titanic!

There’s An App For That!

You can’t achieve a goal by merely stating the preferred end result. Goals need specific application to be successful. In this upcoming series, I will provide common-sense, tangible ideas to help curb your enthusiasm for spending in key areas of your budget. Starting next week we will work on the Food App, with my two-part review of The Grocery Game.

Tell me — What is your biggest budget buster? Food, sports, child’s activities?? Let me know a bit about your biggest budget buster in the comments below and we may address it in a future post.
