My husband and I have put ourselves on a financial diet recently to prepare for him quitting his job this summer. Diet is the best word for it becasue that is how it feels. I feel like we are restricting calories (things and perks) and exercising (spending time to save even more money, like spending time shopping sales or doing things ourselves).
So far it is going okay, but one thing I am missing is my bottled water. I know it's better for the environment to drink from the tap, but I am a water snob and have been enjoying bottled water in my home. Those nice big bottles of always ready, clear, cold water. But now it is gone.
Tap water is more convenient - I can get it from any of our 4 faucets in the house - and it's better for the environment - no diesel trucks delivering plastic encased water to me.
Oh well, if that's all I have to complain about, drinking tap over bottled water, then life must be pretty damn good!
