Just finished paying the bills for the month. My expenses have been rather low. I am sure not being able to get and about much has helped with that. :)
Before Alfred deployed we had gotten behind on bills. At his civilian job, he is not paid an hourly rate, but book hours which means it goes by the job as to how many hours can be charged (he is a diesel mechanic). With the economy the way it is, work had slowed way down.
I just about have us caught up...next month for sure. That will be a huge relief and then I can start putting money back in savings so we will be better prepared for slow seasons. It is also why I want to stock the freezer and pantry. I see it as a security in hard times.
How do you prepare for lean seasons?
