Ok, enough about how great I am. How do YOU budget for fun? I’m not talking date night, since that’s already in our budget. I’m talking like big, fun things for your family to do. Vacations, etc.
I get caught up in needing a 3-10 month (depending on who you talk to) reserve of your monthly income should you need it. We’re striving towards this. We definitely have 3 months, and we’re heading to 6… but it’s a slow process.
But, I also think it’s important for you to ENJOY the money you’re working to earn, instead of just saving it all.
So, what do you do? I want ideas. One year we put 50 bucks in a pot every time I worked, and we used that for some day trips. It was fun for the kids to realize that they too got a perk when I worked.
