Doesn't it boil down to being prepared?

April 5th, 2008 at 12:34 pm

I posted about how much I don't like making dinner. That was in response to my approach: about an hour before dinner should be served, I would walk into the kitchen and just stand there, not knowing what I should make (that, and I'm tired at the end of the day).

Well, we recently made improvements in our eating habits, and I decided to put together a recipe menu box on index cards, which lets me know what to make this week and exactly what to buy at the grocery store. And lo and behold, this has helped save me from daily heartache AND it has helped me save $ at the grocery store.

Anyway, now that I am prepared, there's no anxiety. And I think that's what being financially savvy is about. Doing the best you can with what you have to prepare for the future. That seems like a good perspective to me.

PS - I know I'm slow about these things, but I'm a work in progress.
