10/24/09 - My website makes a difference

Quite some time ago, early January 09 actually, I posted about envelope budgeting. I had received a few questions from my readers and since it is something I believe in, I thought it would make for a good post. There were several more follow up questions, but all from my base of normal readers.

Then, about a month ago, I got an email from an address I was not familiar with. This is not the first time this has happened, but it is usually due to the p90x review. This time, it was in regards to the envelope budget.

After a few emails back and forth, I gave him a call and we had a nice longer conversation where I tried to get him started with some of the basics, and gave him several examples and reasons why this works and how helpful it is has been for my wife and I.

I think we spoke one other time on the phone and haven't really heard from him since. Based on his accent, I was pretty confident he was from New York, and after a quick look-up on his area code, sure enough, New York City area.

The last conversation we had, he had setup his different categories and was in the process of setting up a method of when and how to fill those categories each paycheck. He really sounded like he had everything under control, and I could tell he was excited about getting his finances in order.

He had mentioned wanting to buy a house soon, so I really hope that he is able to stick to this and save up the money he needs. I don't know if he ever reads this blog anymore, but if he does: "Good luck dude!"
