Certainly not in my pocket. Perhaps under the bed? No, that's just a cat. As we watch the markets collapse, homeowners lose homes due to foreclosure, and retirement funds dwindling, it makes me wonder: will I have the energy to work UNTIL I AM 80??? I hope not. I really really hope not. But while The Prof and I have decent paying jobs, make all of our payments on time, and have just enough left to throw in savings, I still feel the belt tightening. And no, it's not my widening belly. What is happening? I think we are spending less. We try not to eat out too much. Rarely do I go shopping. What gives? Is food that much more expensive? Does the price of gas really hurt that much? What are we doing wrong???
If you will turn your attention to the right of this blog, you will note Bossy's Poverty Post badge! Because of my work, I completely support this endeavor. And because of my support, I will try to post my attempts to decrease debt, save money, and live a more modest lifestyle. That is something we all should probably be doing.
