      No, you’re not his mother, you’re his life partner. Do you cook the

      meals for him at your home? Or does he prepare his own dinner??? I

      hope you will re-consider on this issue. A savings of $80 – $120 a

      month is riding on this……money that can help you pay down some

      bills. My mom packed lunch for my dad every day for 44 years. And I

      packed lunch for my husband for over 20 years. It’s not a big deal,

      it’s not demeaning, and for a little effort each evening, you can see a

      difference!

      Hope you’ll reconsider on this at least for awhile.

      In the meantime, I have friends who have used the Dave Ramsey system

      and they say it is wonderful! Best of luck to you.

      In these times, especially with GAS so high, and I am seeing a great

      increase in prices at the grocery store, too, it is so hard on all of

      us to make ends meet!!
