Do you watch the TV show Till Debt Do Us Part? I watch this show every chance I get. This girl is just so talented when it comes to showing people where they are going wrong, and how to fix there mistakes as a couple, family. We have gotten so many great tips from this show which has showed us how budget our money, and even create a savings while getting our selves out of debt. This means we can still do the things we want like buying movies, going to the show, eating out, and our own hobbies like scrap booking and what ever it is he does. Not saying we do that all in one month or all the time, but we know when we can now, and we know where we have to say no to our extras. The jars. It's really all about the jars. Try it it works. We did. We had jars for Gas, groceries, pets, bills, extras and savings. Probaboly a few more. It shows you when you when you save 300 for groceries but really you only spend 250. That the rest of the month you have to use other money for food. Which means less gas or extras. It really helped us a lot. Showed us where our money was going and why we were going over our budget. Going over budget was only because we didn't know how much we spent on extras. And not putting enough down for things. Finding out all the interest rates and figuring out how long it will be to pay something off was another thing we were unaware of. If you get the chance to watch this show, I suggest that you do. Try the jar system at home and let me know if it works. Do you already use the jars or a system like that with your budget?

Jars are amazing. Honestly put every cent of change from what ever you buy from the jars, back into the jars. It shows you the savings. Hope it works for you. Have you ever seen this tv show?
