I don't like extra fat on my meat, and that got me thinking if there are ways I can trim the "fat" from my expenses. You might also consider if there are things/expenses you could trim away that would hardly be noticed. For example, if you have a magazine subscription, is it a magazine you could do without? Or could you just as easily read it at the library for free? When you go out to eat, could you drink water instead of ordering a soft drink? Could you watch a movie without buying popcorn? How about refilling your own water bottle to avoid purchasing bottled water.
This week focus on seeing how much fat you can trim away from your budget, without giving up the standard of living you've been accustomed to. I'd love to hear how you do!
Next on my list of favorite books is the "Fablehaven" duo. We're just reading the second book, Fablehaven, Rise of the Evening Star. We love, love, love it! The third book is due out next year.
My favorite children's series. Just finished reading the sixth in the Charlie Bone series to the girls. 'Charlie Bone and the Beast' is the title. We all loved the books, and are listening to them on tape in the van.
