Staying the course
This is my mantra: just keep plugging along, stay the course, keep with "the plan," at least for now. Making small sacrifices does pay off. We continue to live below our income, and have a decent quality of life.
One constant seems to be our trash fees. 3 weeks worth of trash and recycling driven over to the transfer station this morning: $6.40. With roughly $2 in monthly costs for the transfer station sticker, I need to keep our trash fees (weighed and charged @ 20 cents/lb)low. An average of $2/week is about right.
