Ugh. I just got a call and text that I missed my phone bill payment and it’s now “late”. I used to be so together and never missed payments. Over the years, I’ve became less anal, but I’ve also lost some control of my systems. Several blogs ago, I complained about accounts and passwords. Money management is starting to feel the same way. I don’t know what end is up anymore!
This…. This is part of the action we need to take in order to retire early. I mean how can we retire early if we cannot even pay a bill on time? I am trying auto-payments, but I’m skeeered. I am afraid the money won’t be in the account on time because of the way we sometimes spend. Whatever we are doing now, it’s not working. Reduction of debt is only one portion of this…. Reduction of overall accounts is also only one portion of this… Get to work!
Hopefully an upcoming vacation gifted to us will help me get my head on straight and be able to manage this a little better. We usually solve the world’s problems on road trips. Let’s see if we can solve our own money management problems along the way this year.
