Well, that makes it an easy decision
With impending time off of work without pay, I am clamping down on every expenditure, seeking alternatives, substitutions, things I can drop such as use up the cocoa, then try mixing up some of my own "mix" or just move to hot tea for the kids in the morning. One line item that I tweaked earlier this year was the home delivered newspaper, dropping from a 7 day program to Th, Sat, Sun. With budget review came the thought that maybe I should drop down further to just the Sunday paper. Fastforward and I received this letter today, advising me that the paper rate is going up in January. Sigh. Looks like I am dropping it to just Sunday, if not losing it all together.
