Trying to keep an on-going to-do list in your head can make you crazy.
As a mama, business owner, wife, daughter, friend and un-paid chef, I constantly feel like I have a to-do list running in my brain at all times.
Putting my family and my health first has always been top priority, which is why I can't keep a financial to-do list running in my brain. I would literally go insane.
Can you imagine trying to keep track of all of this stuff in your head every day?:
Where all of your money is going this month
If you paid all of your bills
When to pay all of your bills
Tracking your sinking funds
Knowing how much is in savings
Remembering how much debt you have left to pay off
Planning for a vacation that fits your budget
- Oh, and that grocery list!
If it doesn't seem possible to juggle all of this...it's because you were not meant to!
Writing tings down not only helps us remember these important things, but also acts as a safety net for when we forget!
