Losing My Mojo

September 26th, 2007 at 01:30 am

I feel a bit like I'm losing my financial mojo. I've stopped tracking everything I spend. I'm still using my budget, but I went over on household expenses due to needing to get a new door. I want to pay everything off now, and I get frustrated when I realize how long it will take to even feel like I'm making progress. It is discouraging to see so much of my debt payments going towards interest.

Despite this, October should be a good month. This paycheck will have 10 hours of overtime on it. Plus, my tiny raise went into effect in September, and it looks I'll have an additional $25 each paycheck. And I think October is a 3 paycheck month. Oh how I love those months, since that last check has fewer deductions.

    Well, my financial motivation ebbs and flows, so I don't think there's anything really bad about that.

    I also think the it works best when it's integrated into one's life as transparently and as effortlessly as possible. Like an ingrained habit. Either that or I'm just a very lazy guy. Big Grin
