This morning, I sat down to watch Oprah's Debt Diet and catch up with the families that started the debt diet a year ago. The families made great strides in cutting into their debt and making some changes. Most of them reported that their marriages improved and they gained a sense of working together as a result of the Debt Diet. The advice from the money gurus (Jean Chatzky, author of Make Money, Not Excuses, David Bach, author of The Automatic Millionaire and Girl, Get Your Credit Straight!) all had the same advice: Stop spending, sell some of your stuff, increase your income, and pay off your debt.
Sounds so simple, doesn't it?
The hubby and I have made some changes here and there lately and cut back on our spending and gas use. We've been staying home more and the kids took their lunch to school more frequently instead of purchasing the school lunches.
Yet, this week, the Chicago Sun Times reported that food prices are on the rise and the cost of eggs has risen 81%.
So I guess that means we'll be eating less eggs this summer.
