Personal Finance is Tedious!
I don’t know what has changed, but I have not been interested in personal finance lately. I haven’t tracked my spending carefully (though I fully plan to reconcile my budget this month). I haven’t been on top of my annual enrollment, even though choosing health insurance wisely is important. I haven’t done savings projections. I’m just totally uninspired!
I think it happened when I had to start considering T’s irregular pay schedule with my own. Previously, goal-setting was easy, because I had a very good idea what kind of cash I’d be bringing in. Now, T got a check in September, will get one in January, and one more in March or April… then we have no idea where his next check will come from! My monthly budgeting scheme totally fails in this situation!
I’ve been doing really well with the little things like bringing my lunch and not buying things I don’t need, but I feel like I have no “big picture” when it comes to personal finances. Lately, I’m much more interested in my career and my running. Personal finances has become a chore! Do you ever get into this mode? What do you do?
