Budget- The Dirty Word, shared by Dave Ramsey

“You’ve got to tell your money what to do or it will leave”

~Dave Ramsey~

The holiday season is over and most of us have found that we have over indulged not only on the goodies but with the credit cards as well.  Now a few pounds heavier and a few dollars lighter, how do we recover?  Well to drop a few pounds we would exercise and eat better, right?  So, to fatten up our wallets Dave Ramsey, the budget king, would probably say we need a budget and a plan.

Dave Ramsey delivers the message clearly but we all cringe at the thought of making a budget.  Forcing ourselves to sit down and look at where we are on paper financially can be uncomfortable.  Maybe that’s why the word budget to us is such a dirty word.

Do you actually know where every penny is spent?  I for one will fess up and say ‘no’.  I’m more than sure many can relate as well.  We really need to start asking ourselves do we really need to stop for coffee every morning?  What if we take that coffee money and applied extra toward that credit card that we want to pay off?

We are certainly always ready for another credit card or another car payment.  For some strange reason, we appear to be comfortable with debt.  Our necessities have really become materialistic things.  Living pay check to pay check one would think we would be ready to take control of our money.  It would become the last straw.  Can you imagine for once telling our money what to do as Dave Ramsey highly suggests.  Our financial stress would decrease greatly.

  1. Love the Jim Rohn story too – about the first time your child receives payment or a money gift . . .
    So you take him to the poorest neighborhood in town and you ask him, “Do you want to live like this? ” “No.” “All right then. You can’t spend the whole dollar.” in that fabulous drawl of his.

    Wish they’d start teaching budgeting in elementary school – and keep teaching it every following year! We’d all be money masters by the time we graduated.

  2. I love this guy. I talk about him in all my books. Had debt, took 7 years and 3 jobs to pay it off, never again! Although, now we are buying a house so I’ll have to go back to Dave for advice on getting that paid off. Love your site. I’ve already watched 3 videos and joined and I don’t join other sites anymore unless they have good stuff.
