Waste Not Want Not

Since January 1, we've being looking at all our expenses with a sharp eye and been very careful spending money. Quicken made us realize our household budget was a very leaky boat. We were spending way money too much on going out to eat, and now we're eating at home much more.

The results after six weeks? Have we saved money? Yes. But even more striking, is how much weight Mike and I have lost! What the heck were we eating?

If you haven't read Your Money Or Your Life, don't miss it. It helps you realize, a penny saved is a minute at home with your family or friends — i.e., Take This Job And Shove It is always best sung to the key of flush (with cash).
