The Credit Card Statement You Want To Forget

Have you ever had a credit card statement period you just want to forget? Forget you spent that much money. Forget it felt so good to do awesome things that required boatloads of money. Forget you had to buy necessary things with boatloads of money.

The past month has been full of expenditures for our household. I bought our plane tickets to New Orleans, my plane ticket to Mexico, transportation from airport to cruise port, glasses, contacts, anniversary dinner and outings, new tire for hubby’s car, doctor copays (vision, primary, and chiropractic), and I’m sure I’m missing some other things.

We, also, went a little off track with our food spending. It seems like the more you spend, the harder it is to reign in the spending. Knowing our credit card statement was going to be high, only made us more carefree. Sort of like what’s the point in worrying about it.

The good thing is we had the savings for the expenditures.

Now, it’s time to take action. We gotta reign in the spending this next month. Less eating out, no going to the mall, and no extra expenditures.
