Yep, not happening right now. I just saw how expensive invites were and I freaked out. I had planned like 50$ for everything, but I forgot that the first time I had looked at prices online, I was looking for magnet STDs. *facepalm*

But I’m still putting a ”savings” column for every purchase I make (it’s still encouraging to see my initial budget for each item, how much I paid for them (lower), and how much I’ve saved). One day, dollars will become hundreds I guess. 🙂

I had this moment! I won’t go into it at length – let’s just say it happened along the way. I went through what I imagine are the staging of reaction to this – freakout, denial, hand wringing, acceptance….I think the most important thing is that if (I mean WHEN) it happens, just make sure it doesn’t happen going forward for everything! 🙂

You are not alone, and it will all be ok 🙂

I think we’ve all been there at some point in the process!  FI and I freaked out when we thought we’d had an extra couple hundred and oops – we didn’t! (Wah wah).
