Doing Business as Family

A place for diet cokes (and everything in its place)

Cold glass with cola and ice cubes

Doing your own personal family bookkeeping sounds really awesome, responsible and fascinating…until it comes to confrontation time. Having to face the music on all of your small purchases and then categorize them is uncomfortable to us, because we love our treats, like Diet Cokes and cupcakes. But why bother feeling guilty about it? All I’m asking you to do is categorize them. I get you, I don’t like giving up my treats either, and so I don’t. I fully expect myself to make those purchases, so I give myself room in the budget for it. And then life is gravy.
