Making a budget you can stick to | Good Not Perfect on

It’s been awhile since our last “Money Monday” so we thought it was time for another one.  This time around, we decided to pop on over to our friend Michelle’s page at Simplify, Live, Love to give her fans a pep talk since they just completed a 30-day Spending Strike for the month of January.

You know how after a strict diet sometimes people feel so deprived they quickly reward their behavior with that “side of fries” or a gooey cinnamon roll (or three)?   I thought it was worth thinking about how someone might be able to “ease” back into a sustainable lifestyle after completing such an “Extreme Weight Loss” type challenge with respect to their budget.
