I was off work again yesterday while 90% of the world went to work. If you read my blog then you’ll recall that staying home when most everyone else is at work makes me yearn to be a kept woman. I’m still on that quest. Yesterday, I spent lot of time thinking on how best to get me there. I have a couple of areas that need some major straightening out. They both revolve around money. We do not want for anything right now, and I’d like for it to remain that way when Kahuna finally retires.
I am trying to get my act together to where I don’t H.A.V.E. to work. Not today, next month, or probably even next year, but at the most in 5 years, I want to be able to be voluntarily unemployed. I don’t know if I’m the type of person who could just quit and be 100% financially dependant on Kahuna, but I would like to find out, and if I find myself going cabin crazy, I’d like to be able to either just be a volunteer somewhere, or if I feel the need for pocket money of my own, temp, or at the most work part time a few days a week. So, while I’ve been working on that, I’m wanting to ramp it up a bit.
With that I stand here, hat in hand, sort of, and ask you for your help.
I want Kahuna and I to start “eating clean.” If you have any resources that you personally swear by, I would appreciate the referral.
I want to only spend $300 a month to do the above and am looking for some “shopping lists” that accomplish that. So far I’ve only found $200 a month for 1 person. Right now I’m spending close to $500 and I feel like I’m wasting a lot of money.
I’m hoping by putting this out there, someone may suggest something that I haven’t thought of. I’m planning on going to the bookstore this weekend for a sit and browse and any books suggestions will be hunted down.
