Well now I have 60 dollars. I thought I would be doing better but something is better than nothing.

Still plugging along

I am still hitting those no-money days. I keep the twenty in my pocket and try not to spend it. It appears to be working. I am steadily paying down the bills and I am still keeping up with them.

My DW is still using coupons and she was pleased at punch that she got a large bag of chips for only a quarter. I have to say that she has been good up to this point with the money issues.

My health is still preventing me from working as much as I would like. That sort of puts me in a tighter spot than I wanted to be. What can you do? Things happen.

Less is more! That is my new credo. Hell, it has to be!

Not so healthy of late!

Well the extra work I was counting on never materialized so I am tightening the belt a little further. Heres a hope that my face does not turn blue!

I had some health issues as well and that did not help.I really could not have done the extra work even if I had wanted to do so.

My spending is still basically at life support levels and that is pretty much it. I am still looking for any way to save a penny and cut existing costs further. My wife is still clipping coupons and looking for sales. I think the grocery bill of 650 per month is still too high and it is still a bone of contention. Prices have gone up but I believe it is still possible to save money if one really wants to.

The utility bills are running just 37 dollars over last years bill total. I think this is because of a milder winter and our turning down the thermostat a bit more.

I can't wait for the winter to be over! It weighs very heavy on me. Geez! It seems all I do is penny pinch and payt down debt. I can't wait to be out from under!

Back to the grindstone! I hope it all works out in the end!
