So I am taking this FPU class and according to DAVE married couples are supposed to consult with each other before purchasing anything, and in making a monthly budget.
Well, shoot, I am not married? What do I do about that? Initially I was using my sister as my "accountability partner" since we are doing this class together. But now that's not gonna work.
My sister and I have decided to make this into a little friendly competition - who can save the Baby Emergency Fund faster. Now, she has more money coming in than I do (2 incomes) but she also has kids, and her husband is not 100% on board with the whole thing, which makes it more challenging. Since we can't really compare actual dollar amounts, we are using percentages to make it more fair.
So I am just posting this to proclaim that I have F I N A L L Y pulled ahead of her slightly in the savings category. *smug*
I know she reads this. That's right! I have more money saved than you do. How you like them apples? :-) Class is tonight!
PS. I won.
