I took the pledge!

Posted by Kim McGrigg on 4/1/2008

I am proud to be the 221st person to pledge that I will follow the path to financial wellness. That means that I am ready to accept responsibility for changing my financial situation for the better. I guess that also means that I am publicly admitting that change is necessary.

After writing about money management for more than a decade, I have certainly learned a thing or two about budgeting and credit. Yet, there are still a lot of “do as I say and not as I do” moments in my financial life. For example, pledge #8 is about planning for periodic expenses. That is definitely good advice that I don’t follow (yet).

So I realize that it might seem awkward to follow a path of someone who sometimes still gets lost.

Or is it?

If I were trying to change my eating habits, I know that I would rather take on the challenge with a friend who has a few pounds to lose herself than spend my precious time with a 112-pound coed in a bikini. And as much as I admire some of the better known financial experts, it can be hard to talk budgeting with someone who owns her own jet.

So, I hope you will consider me a friend (with a few thousand to lose) and join me. Take the pledge today.
