Well, it’s hit the fan, as they say. My last day at work is going to be March 1, 2012. I’m not sure how we are going to pay the bills in April. I have a few things lined up, but I am honestly just praying that the good Lord continues to provide. I took a look at our budget tonight, looking for things we can get rid of to help cut costs. Obviously, the first to go is the “entertainment” budget. No more dinners out, no more movies out, etc. If we watch movies at home instead, we could save up to $50 a month, and if we ate dinner at home every night, we could save up to $250 a month. What else? I am racking my brain. I hate to get rid of our http://www.directstartv.com/, but I’m thinking that will probably need to go, as it is technically considered “entertainment.” We need our internet, though. Home phone? I think we need in case of emergencies. I know this is going to be an adjustment for our family, but we have no choice.
