If you’re like most people, you probably cringe (or maybe even cry), when you hear the word budget.
Practically my whole life, I thought of a budget as something for people that didn’t have any money.
“I’m going to be a doctor”, I thought to myself. “Who needs a budget, with all the money I’ll be rolling around in?!” Ha. Ha. Oh, Shannon…
This is probably why I have over half a million dollars in student loan debt.

This has the opposite effect of restraining, and is instead quite freeing!

Instead of feeling guilty about spending money on these things, we felt great about it because it was in the budget, and we knew we could afford it.
