Improving financial management

Now that Weazer is unemployed, we are forced into a belt-tightening mode. Not that this will be a real hardship for us, but we have both agreed to see how little we can spend. We are making it a challenge of sorts, cutting back on a lot of unnecessary spending.

Some quick hits were the housecleaner, personal training and weekly manicures. Staying away from Gary’s will be a big help too.

We are also looking at switching to Verizon FIOS service to cut back on Cablevision costs. I have to do some apples-to-apples comparison on this.

One thing we DID continue this year was the Scotts Lawn service. The yard was so much healthier this past year. We figured it was a good investment for 2007.
