Yesterday I had a very interesting talk with someone who is very dear to me. I told her, perhaps a bit of doubt about my own decision, that I cancelled our cable contract. In about a month’s time, we won’t have any cable anymore. I am heading for a couple of very difficult months and I want to try to save some money. I hardly watch television, only my girls. they have enough dvds they get from their father. I think they can watch television for 2 or 3 weeks non stop. I also changed my land line contract which adds an additional saving.
The total yearly saving will be: 347,40 euro/476,94 usd/303,24 gbp. that is quite some money. You have to know that before I can spend those 350 euros I have make sells for at least 1100-1200 euros (taxes, business costs, ingredients etc). That gives a whole different perspective on things, not being on a fixed income!
During my conversation with my dear friend, she said that it is only luxury and not necessairy. And we talked about what is luxury in our lives, she said that even tea and spices are a luxury. That got me thinking: you see: I live a luxurious life!I have staples of spices, herbs, tea’s (which I blend myself) and coffee!
