OneWord: FOCUS on Money

If my calculations are correct,* I spend between $1,880 and $2,000 a year on workweek lunches.

I feel I deserve this extravagance. And that may well be. However, I cannot afford it.

By brown bagging it just one day every week, I can:
•  save about $30 each month, or more than $350/year
•  take care of the possible $27.75 monthly increase in my condo assessment without any undue hardship.

And so I shall begin January by focusing on packing my lunch one day/week. I won't allow myself to forget/ignore this.

*A big "if"

  1. I've had the reality check on my finances, too. I've got to trim all the little extras from my budget. No fun being an adult.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
