New Year Budget

It is a new year and I have spent part of my day reflecting on last year and planning for 2009. Part of this reflection had me reviewing my budget for 2008 and working on one for this coming year. It was a lengthy reflective process. All signs point to having less available money which means that just about every area in my budget needs to be pared down. I have just spent over $500 tuning up my old car so I am sincerely looking forward to it performing well for another year. I am also counting on my health and the health of my cats staying sound for another year. My cooking habits will have to be adjusted and that will mean less expensive foods. No new clothes unless absolutely necessary. Less expensive gifts. It will be a challenge but perhaps not really a bad thing. I am a creative person and I am really looking forward to this new year. Life is good.
