Following in the footsteps of My Pretty Pennies, I thought it would be a good idea to answer these questions each week and to track the changes.

The idea is that you list five questions about money and answer them each week. The first four questions stay the same, and the fifth one changes each week. I think it will be fun for us to look back over time and see how our answers have changed!

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on _____.

Gas. I’ve spent over $50 to fill my tank each of the last 2 or 3 times!

2. Today I feel _______towards money.

Great! We are making good progress with our savings and emergency fund!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was _____________.

I was able to make great progress toward my immediate weight loss goals.

4. I will consider this week a success if I _____________.

Make time to study for my class at church, have daily devotion with my wife, and find time to write articles and work out!

5. The most important financial lesson that I learned from my mother is ____________.

The importance of being organized and having a realistic financial plan!

So, there you have it! I plan to answer these questions once a week (changing the 5th one), and I hope you’ll join me. Please answer these questions in the comments, and discuss each other’s answers. I also want to hear your feedback about my answers.

Here are the questions without my answers, so you can copy them:

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on _____.

2. Today I feel _______towards money.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was _____________.

4. I will consider this week a success if I _____________.

5. The most important financial lesson that I learned from my mother is ____________.

I really like that you take time to consider the little successes as well. It’s so easy to get bogged down by all of the money we have to fork out each month for bills and unavoidable living expenses. I always tell people that you need to set smaller, weekly goals and give yourself a pat on the back when you reach them. Saving for the future is a journey that we must take one step at a time. After all, retirement is supposed to be a reward, right?

This is a great idea. It is like taking a picture and watching how your kids grow over time.
