I thought it would be an interesting comparison to look at our expenditures while we were living below the poverty level, and now that we have a lot more money coming in.
I took the totals for six months in the year 2000, added them together and divided them by six. I did the same with six month from 2007.
Compared side by side, 2000 vs. 2007.
Sometimes I wish we could go back to living that tightly. We could pay off our debt in no time at all! But it was a very uncomfortable time, one I’d rather not visit again.
One of the things I find most interesting is that we managed to find land and a home out here that cost just a bit more than it did back then.OUT OF DEBT AGAIN is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to AMAZON.COM.
