The one area where more money leaks out of the monthly pot of money is Food/Eating. So many thought nothing of stopping
by a fast food place and dropping $10 for lunch or snacks, or ordering a pizza or two, & a $3 cup of coffee instead of
cooking since it takes too much time and effort. I have news for all of you the same money you spend for coffees out, snacks,
pizza in a week will feed the family for a week....if you cook. And I am not talking foodie gourmet cooking but the simple
meals of the bygone days that are at once tasty, that will nourish the body & soul; easy to make with 30 minutes or less.
When the money gets tight how do you save? What are the rules for a happy life? Comes from David Copperfield by Dickens make
$100 a week spend $101 a week and get misery. Make $100 a week spend $99 a week and you will have contentment. For gonzo budget
make over you need to do these 3 things.
1. No more eating out, any where any time.
2. No more texting
and cell phone, or cable TV.
3 Learn how to cook and I do not mean gourmet expensive stuff.
To see how
much these really cost you, add them up. There is plenty of slug time spent on the phone with the conversations of nothing
the texting of babble and watching the inane stupidity on TV that can be spent on Home making( for men and women) that will
enhance your life and not simply waste time. Time and money both are finite and slip through you fingers quickly.
