In our little world:$2480 = approx 16 weeks groceries.$699 = 2 months of healthcare payments$3250 = 1 semester of community college$1695 = 8 weeks of utilities (gas electric, water, sewer & trash)Not exactly freedom, but I like the idea. :-)
Clamco,Your comment puts things into perspective quite nicely, and never mind the thousand dollar fashion accessories. Most of us are just trying to get by. Food is the only thing I go shopping for anymore. You can't eat a purse, or shoes, or a suit, and when the power goes out, the ipad is useless. It might be useless anyway...Good job on the new blog (http://clamcocottage.blogspot.ca.) Love the new place, and will be checking in to see how things are progressing.
