Figuring out a Budget for Life

I did not realize that I spent so much of my money on eating out. My husband and I realized that we were spending about thirty dollars a night on food. I could not believe that it was so expensive, until he showed me all of the receipts that he had from the places where we had dinner for seven nights. I had to make a budget and I knew that I was going to have to go to in order to budget how much it was to bring all of my laundry to the cleaners. I thought that it was a good thing to ask around for people as to who they bought their laundry to, because I do not have the time during the week to do my own cleaning. I have two jobs, and I have to work because I did not save for retirement and I have to make sure that I am ahead of the game.

I wanted to speak with my friend and ask her how much she allowed for cleaning services and laundry, it was really important for me to be able to compare and contrast the differences in prices and service at all of the local cleaners. I wanted to make sure that I was going to use a place where people around me used. I find that if someone is willing to say something nice about a business then it will be worth checking into. I like to tell my friends when I like a business because I feel like it would be worth to get other people to go there. I especially feel this way when it is a small company and they do rely on people going into their doors. I feel great when I can use a small business.
