Bored of money
I’m bored of money lately.
I know where I want my money to go each month. My savings are largely automated. Sometimes something comes along that doesn’t quite fit into the budget, and I adjust it. I have my priorities. After this years crazy wedding/travels, I’ll start paying a little more attention to the car fund again.
Until T graduates, we have no idea what (if ever) our time line is for a house or if we’ll stay here in Cali for years and years. While I have some vague idea of a time line for kids (not soon), I really don’t need to do anything to prepare for that except save what I can now and enjoy what I can now.
All that is left to blog about is stuff that I buy, which is either not exciting (hey, got some laundry soap yesterday!) or only serves to encourage others to want to spend (don’t you want a trip to Europe too?!).
I don’t struggle with my budget, mostly because I have relaxed it enough that I don’t want for anything. That doesn’t mean I splurge on everything, but I’m not constantly denying myself either. Frugality is a habit that I (mostly) practice, but it isn’t a fun little game anymore. It just isn’t.
So, what to do?
Don’t worry, I’m not shutting down the blog or even switching the focus. I’m just doing what this blog is meant for: sharing how I feel right now, and wondering if any of you feel the same way too sometimes.
