The death of money

Oh, severe post title, right? That's just a cheap way to combine my topic with some photos I took today at the Green-Wood Cemetery.

Well, money, we had an ok run, but our time is up. I know I've said it before, but I mean it this time: we are on a strict budget.

We are determined to move out of this apartment at the end of our lease next summer. Yeah, we said it before. Several times. But several factors had us putting it off. No longer! We are out. Take note, Landlord! Also, we are buying a car. Take note, Car Salespersons!

So, in order to finance this move, we are on a budget. Which includes, but is not limited to: no more vacations.

Uggggh. That's the worst part of a budget. I love vacations! But no more until next July-ish. Excluding an upcoming to Gettysburg (a birthday present from me to my Civil War-obsessed love), a trip to London (a work trip, mostly) and Toronto at Christmas.

Other money-saving endeavors include; packing my lunch (like olden times), fewer burritos, and being less wasteful about grocery shopping and food wastage. Watch out, quinoa sitting in my cupboard!

So, here we are. On a budget. Wish me luck/send me your recipes for frozen spinach.


  1. Yay! A fellow person who's on a budget! I'm not moving though - going on an adventure that's costing me several months salary - so no more buying breakfast and lunch every day. :(

  2. Sometimes tight budgets can be good for us, it encourages you to use resources better and be more creative!
