Octopuses, Tax Returns, and Sticking to the Budget. A Financial Friday Cartoon
We all know that sticking to a budget means doing without a lot of fun toys and gadgets. Darn, it's hard sometimes though, right?
I figured this was appropriate since tax season is upon us, and I'm starting to see those first social media posts where people are showing off their new fitness trackers and flat screen televisions.
Hopefully, if you are on track paying off your debt, or building up a comfy savings, you won't be distracted (too much) by all the shiny stuff. But it's okay to think about it, right?
For instance, right now I am coveting me some Copic markers, because I found this blog, and she makes me believe I can actually figure out how to use them.
And yes. If I had a sixth arm that could regenerate...then I might possibly trade it for some cool markers. Or maybe just a cheesecake.
What is in on your secret wishlist this month, and how are you doing so far on your journey to financial freedom?
