*Pick one area of our budget and work on reducing that area by 10%.

  1. This is a GREAT list! I think I might have to borrow it!

  2. Borrow away! But I want to hear about how things go with whatever you decide to do. And by the way, love your name. . . I totally understand the sentiment!

  3. I like your list – very concrete and sensible.

  4. Z – Thanks! That’s the kind of list we were aiming for – practical!

  7. Loved reading your updated list! We are likeminded on many of these goals. One area we differ is sleep–I need at least 8 hours every night, or else! =)

  8. C – Thanks! We do seem to have much in common when I read your blog. Oh, but the sleep thing is definitely not. I’m feeling pretty good if I get 5 or 6 hours. I usually get a little less.
