Everything is not as it seems February 23, 2010

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

I have been punching numbers into a budget planner for the last few hours and officially we live within our means, even with only one income but it is not actually working that way.

I should have done this a long time ago but I didn’t. I certainly should have done it before I started thinking about staying off work for extra time.

Now I know that we *can* live on one income I have to make it happen. I have changed our mobile phone plans, checked out the cost of our house insurance (which is coming in ā‚¬200 cheaper than the renewal!), looked at the “features” of our health insurance and have noted the changes that need to be made.

I am getting scared by the number of things that I am remembering that I spend. Like road tolls & government ATM card duties.

Oh dear, I’m sure you’ll be able to balance the books and take the extra time off you’re after. You sound like you have a plan in place to make it work for you!

PS Like the new look šŸ™‚
