I'm tracking our money this month and am trying very hard to stick to our budget. It's a challenge in any month but especially in December. I just have to keep remembering that I am sticking to my budget voluntarily because I want to achieve my goals. We really, really want to build a house in the spring of 2013 and we need to have our current mortgage paid before that. I would really love to have some money in savings as a cushion as well.
On the other hand, there are plenty of fun things to do in December for little to no cost like driving around and looking at Christmas lights. I did that with some friends on Sunday. Any other ideas for getting out of the house this month and not spending much money?
