It's only been a couple of days since I started brainstorming ways to make some money from home, but it's already starting to change the way I think about things.
DangerBear and I have always loved going out to eat, and I've never really enjoyed cooking. Even now, with finances being tight from DangerBear's startup business, we're still going out to eat. So when I sit down to write an article that will pay me $5, part of me thinks it's a lot of money and part of me compares it with the cost of eating out. $5 would basically pay for the family's drinks (soda and iced tea). Yikes.
I haven't tracked our finances in a long time; I don't know why, because it's such an obvious thing to do. But I'm going to start up again. Then we can get a true picture of exactly how much we're spending, and how we can save the most money.
