What Do You Mean I’m Broke???

A ‘Budget’ is simply a method for going broke methodically.

I used to create our home budget a year out but invariably I would forget some things and have to make a new one. Oh, and we were broke too. I finally gave up. Ok, my wife insisted that she take over the finances, but still…

Money stress is a horrible thing. Every day it hangs on you like a weight around your neck that seems to get heavier over time. Living direct deposit to direct deposit isn’t easy and just seems to make life miserable.

You can’t really go on trips or do much of anything that costs money. You turn in your change just to buy gas. You know what I’m talking about. The worst is when you try to get money from an ATM and it gives you a jolt of electricity and a voice says, “You idiot, you know there’s no money in your account.” That hurts.
