I am going to try to live within my means, here are three small ways I will try. Now they may not work, I may have to relent but as I am feeling so much better with the new meds I am going to try these.
1. My housekeeper moved and I am going to try to do this myself. I will save 64.00 a week.
2. The family that cleaned the dance studio for scholarship also moved and I will be cleaning the studio myself. This will save me $200.00 a month.
3. I was also able to lower the cell phone bill by about $50.00 a month.
Now these goals will have a net affect of about $500.00 less a month out of pocket. That does not mean it can go toward debt it just means I am not putting the money out. It will help. Any time you do not spend money you save money.
Gas is down to $2.81 here but I hear it is going back up. Will ride the good wave as long as possible.
Just thinking of small ways to help myself live better and cheaper without killing myself.
I have already saved $300.00 toward next months house account and I need $500.00 so I am ahead of the game. Nice way to start the year. I am in debt but I am not behind. Now just to stay ahead of the game. Maybe that should be the goal, to stay ahead of the bills. Ugh!
Have a great and productive day!
