Ok. Here we are. Our first full month under our belt since committing to doing what it takes to reach financial freedom on our terms and in our timeline. I started the month with a few days of refining my budget, and trying to be as real about it as I could. Since then, we’ve been trying to get ourselves to think of our finances differently and to reverse-brainwash ourselves into savings and investing wizardry. But with all that diversion from the real numbers, the real goals can fade from focus. So I’d like to take this chance to check in and see how things are going and to make sure we’re practicing what we preach, or at least learning from our shortcomings.
