If someone was asked to describe me in 10 words or less I’m guessing one of those words would be thrifty and another word would be determined. When you take those two words and put them together you get me, a hard worker who doesn’t like to buy anything unless it’s on sale. I prefer to keep my money in the bank and I’m always overthinking things when I do have to spend money.
That doesn’t mean I don’t like nice things or want to buy nice things. It just means that I think about it, save and put myself through a lot of emotional torment when making a big purchase. I’ve been known to want something, walk away and think about it only to return to buy it and it’s gone.
I’ve had my eye on a Vitamix for a couple of years. I’ve wanted one but didn’t think that spending the money on it fit into our budget. Dallas even bought me one for Christmas this last year but I took it back the next day because I felt guilty about spending the money. I told myself that I would earn one myself and buy it when the timing seemed right.
I’ve been working really hard with Beachbody for the last 9 months. I’ve been saving almost all of the income I’m earning and trying to be smart with our finances. Today I decided to spend what I earned last week and finally buy my Vitamix. It was on sale at Costco and the timing just seemed right.
When I put it in the van today I was in tears. I cannot believe how blessed I am to be helping other women change their lives and I’m also changing mine. I’m staying home with my kids and earning a full-time income. If I didn’t have Beachbody my kids would have to be in daycare before and after school and Austin would have to go full time. I’m home and making my dreams come true, earning enough to keep my kids home. I have freedom and that’s priceless.
