    I'm anxious for our CSA to begin 3rd week of May. I paid the total in January so it always feels free when it finally starts! All we need to buy fresh once it starts is our fruit cuz the veg share is generally huge for 2....but doable if we don't go out to eat!

    We never have any problem staying on budget for groceries. However, we both love to eat out and try to do it only once/week. However, lately we have been going out twice. On one forum I belong to some of the people eat out everyday. I would love it but it would be too unhealthy.
    when I eat out I like to eat things that I don't cook at home.

    I kept following up with the library. They found the book mangled in one of their sorting machines so I will not have to pay to replace it.

    Got a surprise call asking if I would like a paid position with a great non-profit, but I looked up their Form 990-EZ and total compensation is only $26,000 a year, which is just not enough in the Northeast for a single income household. 6 of the 10 days at my new job I have questioned my ability to do the job or my desire to or both, but I am sticking with it because it does provide a living wage and good benefits.

    Yppej: As your tenure increases, you will surely be more confident in you ability to do the job. As far as desire goes, I guess only time will tell, but we can hope for the best!
    We're about to shift to all dept members being able to work from home 2 days per week instead of just one. That is exciting because it will save on commuting costs, time and work wardrobe needs.
