I keep thinking about how much money my husband and I would have spent if we weren't doing this. Easily we would have doubled our spending. No problem. I would have gone to restaurants or fast food 3 times more than I did, maybe even 5 times more. This is progress.
The numbers aren't going to decrease by a lot, but the point is, they are going to decrease! That is enough to make me feel good and keep the ball rolling into a new month.
