The new plan

November 7th, 2009 at 06:23 am

Now that the debt has been paid off, DH and I would like to work toward living off one salary and socking away the other. I just added up all the expenses (bills) that come out of my paycheck and was shocked to see we have close to $400 left over at the end of the month. I'm not confident that's accurate yet because we just moved and I know water/electric etc. will change a bit. That $400 would have to stretch over all non-bills: food, haircuts, entertainment, etc. So we aren't quite there yet. Once we get the car paid off though, I think we can swing it.

In an effort to stay in this frugal mindset I've been in for so many years now, I have a bit of a plan for the weekend:

1. Go to Aldi with a list for breakfasts, lunches and tonight's dinner. I have other dinners already prepared for the week, but tonight we have company.

2. Buy my son new shoes. I can see his toes.

3. Buy my other son new pants because only two pair fit.
