Still have my head above water!

November 15th, 2011 at 09:40 am

Well, I still am out of debt. I don't spend money most days and I sock away as much money as I can. It is a little disheartening getting such a pittance in returns. Still I keep saving.

My DD is in her Junior year at college and she will get through debt free. The wife wants to get her a car for graduation but I can't see that happening.

My car is 12 years old but I am going to run it till it falls apart. We are still clipping coupons and are surprised at the savings. I cannot believe the increases in the food prices! The gas is still pretty steep here as well.

So I am keeping mu head above water and I suppose that will have to be enough for now. We have no mortgage but the taxes are just ridiculous. Our utilities have gone up a good bit as well!

Just getting by but as I said I am doing better than a great many others!
