The internet is flooded with people trying to teach you all of the right ways to budget as a financial blogger, I have people constantly requesting for my best budgeting tips. For the longest time, I was too afraid to tell them I don’t actually like budgeting. To take it a step further, I spend less than an hour a month managing my budget! Even still, I am growing wealth and enjoying my life completely. No more paycheck to paycheck stress. What’s the secret? Budgeting is a waste of time. Let me break it down.
Whether you are working to pay off debt, live life on a budget or just want to get some creative date night ideas, I’ve got everything you need right here! Tom and I have worked to make date nights a weekly event and we intentionally keep our spending around $100 per month. This averages to $25 per date night. To help inspire you I wanted to share 30 of our favorite date night ideas under $25.

So what can you do to start implementing this mindset shift that actually encourages spending money rather than skrimping, saving and avoiding “wasteful” spending.
I have always loved pretty hands. It sounds like such a weird thing, but it’s totally true. Ever since I was a kid, I would look at certain women’s hands and think, “Oh my gosh, they have such pretty hands.” Maybe it’s because my cuticles look like something out of an alien movie. Yeah, I think that’s it.

I never knew there was actually a term for how I grocery shopped! The first thing I always did before going to the store was to take a quick inventory of what we already had. Well, apparently, this is is called shopping your pantry. It makes sense right? Look. through what you already have and then you can start to grow your grocery list from there.
The thing is, not everyone is great at meal prep and strategy. So I decided to break it down and layout how my mind works while I shop my pantry and meal prep.
