With all of these fabulous items that I am dreaming about, I already see what I need to do so that I do not get myself into trouble - I need to create a budget!
I was introduced to this great site called Mint.com. It is fabulous!
Mint.com helps you track your spending from all of your accounts as well as help you to follow a budget. It is really easy to get started.
One of my favorite features is that if you happen to go over a budgeted item, such as "home improvement," it will notify you via email. This really helps you to be aware of what you are spending and where you are spending it!
Try it out! It can help you plan and save so that you can make your dream home into a reality!!
