For me, it has always been a struggle to stay on top of the budget. I can easily get over-complicated, so keeping it somewhat simple has helped. Within the past month I started using You Need a Budged (YNAB), and it seems to have helped me keep it simple. I can also use my phone or tablet, which makes it really convenient.
The other thing that I am really focusing on is working to deepen my relationship with Christ. Digging into the Word on a daily basis and really studying the principles that I expect to learn from this course are ways that I believe will help me “stick with it” this time. Learning to focus less about me and my concerns and more on Him and His concerns is my desire. If I can make progress in that area, I think better decisions regarding my finances will be the result.
