Why? I budget my finances

This weekend was crazy busy. A small event here and there, a couple of last-minute planning for an upcoming art exhibition. How can I pull it off? Well, I get by with a little help from my friends. Even with my hectic lifestyle, I make time for Kim Rogers's spa treatment.

And before you ask me, no, I do not have unlimited time and resources. But I do make time for what's important. And I don't forget to invest in my most valuable asset: myself. Granted, we must pay for the things that make us healthy and safe, like housing and food, as well as for the things we enjoy, like recreation, entertainment, and more.

Believe it or not, I have a rather frugal lifestyle. I don't waste money on unnecessary luxury items, but then again, each decides for themselves where they set the boundaries. Shop sales to stay within budget and save up for a concert or a weekend event. Use coupons for purchases, especially when you buy food in bulk for your pantry. Take a small-dollar loan when you can't handle your expenses. I budget my finances the best I can, but I also have fun, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
