So the first of the month flitted by.
As did the fifth, and then subsequently the month ended. Oh, months, will you ever change your ways? No. Somewhere between the mortgage or rent, the utilities, the Lowes card, the Capital One, the Care Credit for the cats, of course the car payment and insurance, and let’s not forget Junior’s daycare, somehow something slipped through the cracks of your airtight system… you know, that one notebook you keep on the kitchen counter. It’s not working, and also, it has spaghetti sauce and your dad’s pulmonologist’s phone number scribbled on it for reasons unknown. It’s time for a new system. And if you run your own small business from home or a nearby little office, your notebook is seriously going to love partnering up with an app.
