Against The Grain
Within my immediate circle of friends and family, my wife and I know only but one, perhaps two other couples that rent instead of own their abode. And this one couple only rents because they live in NY and the market ran away from their budget. (Remember, when you mortgage a house you are still renting - renting money from the bank.)
I am quite sure that none of these people cook or eats-in as much as we do.
And I just realized that within this same group, Mrs. C-Nut and I are absolutely the only ones that drive *clunkers*.
The blue book value of my 1997 Suburban has got to be less than $1,000. That's what? Three monthly car payments for most people?
I am having a hard time finding things to cut back on in this financial Armageddon. I am open to suggestions.
What I really need is a new revenue stream...
