I was driving home from work the other day when I realized that I now live in a single income household. Wow. I’m on a single income budget with a double income lifestyle.
I’m lucky that I have enough money to live on but it’s odd that I hadn’t really realized until now that there’s only my income. Not that we lived all that extravagantly before but if I wanted to buy every anti-glare, anti-scratch option available for my eye glasses, I bought them. I’ll probably still buy all those features but maybe I won’t buy the most expensive frames in the store.
The obvious isn’t always so obvious. It’s taking me a while to grasp some pretty fundamental things.
