  1. This is such an awesome post! I am the worst with delayed gratification… I am more of a “I need it right now” type, which I know I need to get better at for sure.

  2. The best post of the day…or maybe the year! Lol! Seriously so good and actually life changing! I’m with you, sometimes I’m a little impulsive so the self control or delayed gratification is what I need! Love blessing the next generation by being a good steward. Just the best advice ever, and I didn’t even have to read a book! Yay!

    • I LOVE YOUUUUU!!! Thanks my friend!! This has been a lifestyle shift for me, but a much needed one.

  3. I started to really budget my money and not buy so many want items and have been surprised with how well I have done. It makes me regret not starting sooner.

  4. Such an insightful post! Budgeting can be SO hard!! On another note, completely obsessed with your romper. LOVE those ruffles!

  5. Ben and I read this together for encouragement! We just started our cash budget TODAY as it was pay day and this resonates with us SO well. Thank you for being such an INCREDIBLE example to ALL of us!! I need this in my life and I am glad that you have shown me it is possible to save, have nice things and have self control!!! XO

  6. these are awesome thoughts! i’ve always been a budget person because it’s how my parents are, and thankfully my boyfriend is too, so that helps us – but with a passive income from blogging, it can be a little more challenging to stick to that typical budget hah! i gotta work on that!

  7. We have so many money related conversations in our house too and don’t always see eye to eye but it is so important to keep the convo going!

  8. So true!! We follow one, I just want more in some shopping categories ha! Very little there, but I am blessed to stay at home with my 4 kids too. Did you always stay home or have a flexible job since your kids have been born?
