After a long week at work, just about everyone likes to wind down in some way. For me, my wind down is cooking. I recently started running a Magazine out side of work and that task has taken up much of my time. But I still get into the kitchen at the end of the week.
Kansa and I eat a lot of potatoes and meat. Yet we never eat the same meal twice. As I said before we don’t work with a lot of money for food. For us bills and other obligations come first.
However, Kansa and I are in the middle of a transition. I just got hired on at the place where I have been working as a temp. For years we have had money coming in every week. Now I am getting paid every two weeks, meaning we have to rebudget every everything.
As I revisit how and when our bills are going to be paid, I find that it is also a good to to find ways to pay off the smaller bills sooner. The best way to keep good credit is to keep your spending down by getting rid of your bills as quickly as possible. This transition also means that we have more money coming in. Still we need to make due with what we have. I made some Pita Bread to get us through and it is going to be tight.
Kansa has not been working so next Friday it is only my check and it needs to go for rent. Yet by the grace of God we always make it. I don’t believe it is our right to question the gifts that God has given. So I go to work not even knowing how much per hour I am making. I just know that God will provide.
Due to the fact that Kansa and I only had a potato left in the house, we went shopping with Kansa’s pay check. She did not work at all this week, so Kansa is not getting paid next Friday. In other words we have to make the food we bought last. Remember my check is already committed to our rent. However, I may have to use part of it for food as well.
One of the things I would suggest is never by meat with the bone still in it. Stores charge by the pound and the 9 oz. bone is 9 ounces that can’t be eaten. You get more for your money by paying a bit more to really get four pound of meat in stead of four pounds of meat and bone.
