Hi…don’t worry I’m not throwing anything!
The reason why my husband gets $100 allowance is because most of it goes for
gas. He is a contractor constantly going from one job to the next. Usually
filling his tank 3 times a week and with the gas prices of today he doesn’t
have much left after paying for gas. The 40 or so he has left has to be
divided between food, drink, impromptu runs to the hardware store, and
occasionally bringing home something that I ask for (such as bread, milk, or
posterboard for my daughters school project).
In answer to your other question, I normally spend about $80-$100 at the
grocery store for two weeks, having to return sometime before the two weeks
is up for things such as milk and bread. I really hope to lower the bill
(that is one of the reasons why I found this message board) as well as many
others. I started a budget plan in January to payoff 4 large bills–totaling
over $20.000. My self given deadline is 12/31/03—one year. I just paid off
one–proving to myself that it is possible and worth all the frustration of
constantly being broke. I’m so hyped right now I’ve already started to plan
what to payoff next year (actually next year is the “savings” year). I want
to increase our savings account (shouldn’t be too hard since right now it is
and start some sort of retirement plan for my husband. Does anyone have any
suggestions how to do this? I don’t even know how to get started!
Whew! I got windy didn’t I? Keep sending those great ideas….
