A simple question. If you had to could you cut without starving or freezing cut a simple 2.4% from your total household budget? The rule is the total must be cut not every individual line item. So for example there is a set amount you must pay for a car loan or a mortgage, the required payment.
DH and I had been listening to the clowns in DC over the weekend figured out simply how much the 2.4% would be for us based on average monthly spending and then created our personal cuts. It was really easy. So why can't the feds do it?
Have to admit after 2 days of 33 degrees and raining we were a bit bored.
Oddly enough neither one of us had the extra monthly principle payment on the house we make anywhere near the top of our lists and it would have made up the 2.4% multiple times.
