Need to Spend More Money

Parts wear out.  Things break.

A little extra always helps.

Got that.  E-fund is completely separate and I include a maintenance line in my budget.

I'm thinking maybe add an ethnic dinner at a family owned place once in a while, also, after spending $80 on flea meds for the cats it might be sensible to boost the 'pet' line to cover their maintenance at a higher level.

I would agree on "me time". Plan something really special every year, or twice a year, or once a month. I like the idea of a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, or take the Mule ride into the bottom of the Canyon along the Colorado. Or take a ride in a balloon in the annual Hot Air Baloon Festival in New Mexico. Drive to Alaska and take a cruise on one of the big ships- people say it is a marvelous trip- and Beautiful. Save up and put your money into a well deserved treat. Go to every amusement park in your path and ride the Carousel. In Elephant Butte Lake State Park in NM you can rent a boat or a jet ski for $20-$30. Cheap Fun! Do something different- See Something really beautiful in a different way. Write your bucket list and start crossing off as the mood stikes you...I think having something to look forward to would enhance anyone life in a big way.
It may be a bumpy ride, but it's our ride!
Loving this Life.
