ahhh...spring!

May 4th, 2010 at 05:56 pm

Spring holds such promise for me. The days are longer, the flowers are in bloom (ha-choo!!) and colors everywhere!

I've been married almost three months now and things are pretty much more or less the same. I thought that combining our two households would be stressful and test each other's patience...but as we go through his stuff and mine, with running commentary on whose stuff is nicer, newer and most importantly, paid for!, somehow things feel lighter.

We've made a couple of trips to the Goodwill, boxed old books and DVDs for the local library's spring sale, and donated my wedding dress to bridesagainstbreastcancer. Anything left over (his old ratty couch, his dorm-style dinette set, his hideous black china...notice a pattern here??) will go to the dumpster the association rents each spring.

But we're only getting started. Our dream is to live on one person's salary (and save the rest). Is it possible? Would be nice...

    I love spring! It puts me in the best mood! Oh, and I definitely got the pattern! Smile

    I think that it is definitely possible to live on one person's income, and let that lead to some serious savings and investments from the other income. It is also nice if the one job covers the insurance and other sundries, so that those things aren't taken out of two paychecks, as well. Good luck, and congrats on your nuptials! =)
