This job will immediately pay much more than I've ever made before, eventually paying about 3x as much as I have usually made (And well over twice as much as we have ever made combined). Sorry for the ramble. I have just been discu...

Re: how to fight lifestyle creep

We did not stay in our original house, but did sell it for 50% more than we paid for it. Boy, yeah, I forgot that. On all but one of my previous five houses, I/we made a killing.

Re: Judicious July - Low / No Spend challenge

Eleven days in to the month & still only 2 no-spend days. Today was blown by an urgent doctor's visit & a prescription. < sigh >

It was only $27 today but I know all those labs he sent off are going to come get me next month!
