Belt Tightening

We had to buy heating oil and the car needed its regular inspection – all this together cost us about 2000 Euros (1750 GBP, 2800 USD). This means that for the next four weeks we will reduce our expenses to the absolute necessary. We had done that already before our trip to Armenia and I regard it as a challenge to look for bargains and to think about what we really need at all and what can be postponed. It’s always good to improve one’s money saving skills ;)

Hi Barbara! It is nice to look for ways to save but some things you must have... like heating oil. We only use gas and electricty in SoCal- no heating oil. Hope you have a great rest of the week! (((Hugz)))
