Similar to my crafting ‘illness,’ Nick’s illness is his organization, list-making and spreadsheet obsession. There are times when this is really annoying. But when it comes to our finances… he has a VERY elaborate spreadsheet and system for categorizing all of our expenditures, which comes in very handy. We’re never late making payments, and we can see how much debt we’re knocking out each month. It gets us really pumped up to get our student loans paid off! It’s also very rewarding to see our fertility fund growing. And it IS!
Unfortunately, this ‘organization’ involves saving receipts… which makes for a paper mess. Receipts floating around the house, on the countertops, kitchen table, bedside tables, end tables… just not cool.
So we combined our ‘illnesses’ to make something crafty and organizational… and most importantly, very functional.
I like it already.
It’s already coming in very handy!
