As I posted earlier, I am spoiled. Well, make that was spoiled. This week we decided to suspend the services of our wonderful housekeeper of 5 years, at least until I find a job or we make more money. I know that most readers of this blog likely clean their own house. But, let me have this moment to grieve the loss as well as absorb the fact that I am now the housekeeper.
We have whittled the budget down almost as far as it can go. The only *extra’s* are netflix and XM radio-for a total monthly amount of $22. I am extremely impressed with our ability to go from an extravagant lifestyle where we once had a $500 monthly spending allowance for entertainment (ahh, the good ole days!!!) down to one income and no revolving debt.
