In some ways it is easier to be really poor than just mostly...

July 13th, 2009 at 05:40 pm

It has been commented by others that we always have expensive commodity, but one we feel worth paying for along with whole wheat foods.

We also feel homeschooling, being home with the kids, and church going worth the cost.

Then there are the bills, electricty, gas, house payment, required savings, retirement and so on, all pretty important.

When that was the extent of my paycheck, life was easy.

Now that I have a small amount to spare..what do I do with it?

Piano lessons? or Swim lessons? Karate, or Dance? Should I pay for more homeschool books, French, Spanish? or maybe I should go organic for at least some of our foods? (That huge bag of apples we buy every week..) How about a nature class, or science special. Or maybe I should put it away for a bigger trip next year.

Life is simpler when lack of money dictates you Must do it one way. But then it would be simpler if I had all the money in the world and could do all I wanted (including invent a time machine so I had time to do all I wanted!)

    I think I'd rather have the time machine than the money machine.....but then I'd be greedy with it. What I really want is a time machine that puts everyone else on pause and gives me the time to get caught up uninterrupted.

    Do you have a mortgage? If so, you could pay ahead on it, put some money away for your kids' college or your retirement. Then, of course, there are emergency savings funds. What would do if you suddenly had no salary at all? Having some set aside for that reason is not a bad idea so that you can continue to buy what you need and what you want.
