Change is in the air

I sat down last night and had a good hard look at our family budget.

Its been about 6 months since I did this last, and our situation has changed substantially (mortgage decreased, wages increased), but we're just not making headway with achieving our financial goals.

So after punching in all our expenses into the Sorted website, we discovered where we really should be heading in the coming months, and its pretty damn exciting!

Discipline is required, and we both suck in that department. So we'll be leaving our cards at home and using cash only, to remove temptation for unnecessary spending!

And after checking out the fruit and vege market in the city last Sunday, we're officially converted! Today we braved the rain and gale winds and for less than $20 got:
* Brocolli
* Potatoes
* Carrots
* Courgettes
* Spring Onions
* Pumpkin
* Capsicums
* Oranges
* Bananas
* Cherry tomatoes

The quality was awesome, and I reckon it was about half the price of the supermarket. So not only is this going to be good for the wallet, its going to be good for the body too!

Can you tell I'm excited?!
