Spending on Necessities
Some things are necessities and you have to buy it - like gas. But maybe you are not hitting the road as much. Of course many of us commute or have a work vehicle and we have to continue to spend way more on fuel.
Maybe you are limiting your trips and not traveling as much. That’s certainly a good way to save some money.
Some other things are a little easier to cut back on. Not eating out as much is a good way to reduce costs. Once in a while is OK, but if it comes between going out and filling the tank. You fill the tank.
Are you trying to use less electricity? This expense has gone way up. This time of year, you have to have the air conditioner going pretty regularly.
And what about when we have to start paying for heating oil, kerosene or propane? That’s something you have to keep going for your own family’s health, as well as to keep the home running.
