Anyone else struggle with sticking to the budget? Or unaware of how much they've actually spent? FH and I were discussing the big payments we still need to make and he asked me how much we had spent/are spending after those things are marked off. When I sat down to look at everything I realized I haven't *really* included everything in the budget. For example, I bought all of the artificial flowers when they were on sale. Didn't add them to the budget. Bought an old paint ladder at the Peddler's Mall for escort card display, didn't put it on the spreadsheet. Decided I HAD to have baby tissue boxes that say "happy tears," so I bought them and...SHOCKER, never put them on the spreadsheet.
So on one hand, it looks like we're killing it with the budget lol. On the other, FH might be ready to kill me because I have a shopping problem. It's not like my shopping problem is anything new, I've been like this my entire life lol. And I did kind of offer to return the tissue boxes but also expressed 15 times how adorable they are and "babe, our wedding is going to be emotional. Our friends ALWAYS cry at weddings."
