Official Grownup: Spending Plans with Society of Grownups

11:15 PM

It's been a little over three months now that I've been making mortgage payments and settling into life as a homeowner. So many small expenses that I didn't anticipate that are really starting to add up! Plus, I constantly want to make improvements. My big three right now are finishing the bathroom and bathroom storage, adding shelving for my shoes, and new dishwasher racks. I was starting to wonder how to manage it all while continuing to contribute to my savings accounts and student loans. 

After joining Society of Grownups for their pop-up Spending Plans class at Cafe ArtScience I have a much better idea of my budgeting goals. We focused on identifying our necessities, wants, and whatever to identify areas where attendees could save a bit more to cover those household expenses over an amazing meal.

Creating a spending plan is a little different than traditional budgeting. It doesn't have to be about restrictive budgeting; I loved that Society of Grownups recommended still indulging in the little things that make you happy. Sometimes that $4 latte is necessary for my sanity and Society of Grownups understands that. I think it's important to enjoy the money we earn in addition to putting a roof over our heads. 

Head to the Society of Grownups website to check out their online resources and see that being an Official Grownup isn't as daunting as it seems!
