The Habit

Every Monday night, as part of Family Home Evening, Colin and I reconcile our money transactions on our computer. It’s really helped us stick close to our budget.

I think most of you know of my french fries obsession and overall love of all things fried. I thought that this addiction was fairly under control until Quicken prompted us with this message the other night:

“Do you want to schedule these?”

If you are at all familiar with computerized money management programs, then you’ll recognize that these handy applications will indeed suggest creating a routine payment schedule for merchants or bills that are regular transactions.

The only item on the list: The Habit

Um, yeah… The habit, indeed.

  1. This is hilarious!!! We love the habit too.

    We reconcile the budget on Tuesdays but don’t use anything fancy. If we did, they would ask if we want to schedule Costco.

    Pitiful.

  2. The new Habit is just down the street from my work. I don’t think I do it consciously, anyways, I never intend to… but I find myself forgetting my lunch. A LOT. And it is so good. 🙂

  3. That is too funny! And I didn’t know of your love of fried food until you posted your FaceBook list – wouldn’t have guessed it. I always cringe when it’s time to look back through our weekly spending…Jake and I love Starbuck’s hot chocolate and coffee cake a little too much (especially in the winter!).
