My HBO is $10 and my Netflix is $9 and I'm ready to let both of them go. So the NYT will save me $4. Yeah, I know, blurred math.
It's probably my new found interest in the band, Journey. No clue where this came from. I was musically deaf when they were hot. I'm catching up.
I'm trying out new budget ideas since I no longer have a paycheck. I get an infusion of cash from my investments every month and the IBM pension but it's not like there's new stuff coming in. So, while there's enough, I don't want to get crazy. My current plan has a definitive list of my commitments (mort, comcast, sprint, electricity, the pool, etc.), I also carve out a set amount for discretionary spending (grocery, gas, movies, stuff). This month - with 2 days to go - I've got 25% of my discretionary left over!
I'm thinking about putting the leftover away each month - maybe that will be my CES money.
