today, i want to share something that i've learned from SAVEtember. it's something that people have told me over and over again & something that finance people say all the time BUT it kind of clicked this month.

where you spend your money is where your priorities are.

every time i've heard this in the past, i would think,

today, i want to share something that i've learned from SAVEtember. it's something that people have told me over and over again & something that finance people say all the time BUT it kind of clicked this month. where you spend your money is where your priorities are. every time i've heard this in the past, i would think, "ehhhh. i don't know if i agree with that." but i would think that because i didn't want to admit to myself that making a lunch, planning meals and having plans in general weren't priorities for me. i would use the excuse "i'm too busy to make lunch" or "i was so busy that i forgot to make a lunch" instead of just making the lunch the night before or trying to be ready 10-15 minutes earlier. we also had "plans" for the future, but we didn't really plan for them or create a timeline of when we wanted them to be completed. so basically, we just daydreamed. now that we have set priorities as to WHY we are saving and WHAT we are saving for, staying true to SAVEtember and #shelftember has been easier than ever before. πŸ’² every day, i send parker pictures of mozzie in a series i've dubbed "the daily moz." today, i'm sharing the daily moz pictures with all of you because i cannot handle his tiny tongue sticking out.

OMG Mozie 😍😍😍 It can be so difficult to see what your own priorities are when some are forced on you. I have several chronic health conditons which mean my medical bills (not counting infertility bills) are over $10k every year, and my diet restrictions from the conditions mean that we end up having to spend $500 on groceries just to eat each month 😭 My kitties are obviously a priority though, because I spend about $300 on their health every month (or more) to keep them alive and happy as long as possible: prescriptions, prescription food, etc.
