I am terrible with money and always have been terrible with money and I am on a journey to change that part about myself.   It is tied in with the food addiction somewhat in that I spend a lot of money on just eating out and buying junk food.  I also overspent at Christmas and charged up my credit cards.  This was not a smart move.

I am at some point going to put links to money management articles and put my budget on here and how I stick to it (or don’t!).  I’ll make individual posts about my progress or lack thereof.

Gary is retiring October 2017.  I am going to begin receiving my FedEx retirement soon, as well, although I am not actually retiring.  We will then be existing on my salary, my FedEx pension, his social security, and his 401k from current work.   We will have a lot less to spend but Gary has been spending a lot of money to fix anything that needs fixing, bought new things like a furnace, remodeled our kitchen and bathroom, new porch, new living furniture, fixing up the side porch, etc.  He wanted to get everything done that may would have needed to have been done after he retired.   So I think we will be fine.  We just won’t be spending all of the money that he has been spending on the house.
