Living on less

September 6, 2009

I have a good friend that recently moved to another state, without a job, and not a lot of savings but enough to get by on.  After talking to her recently, it occurred to me how expensive my lifestyle has become and how much of it is completely unnecessary.  Almost 70% of my current income is tied up in fixed expenses!  That’s just crazy-pants Johnson.  The economic recession and uncertainty with jobs has caused a lot of people to reassess their lifestyles and make adjustments.  I think our society is overdue for a shift towards more fiscal responsibility.  As I’m able to, I plan to adjust the expenses in my life down to a more reasonable level.  Something for us all to reflect on. 

Changing subjects:

Is it just me or has Food Network become a complete joke?  What happened to the old cooking shows with actual chefs?  From what I can tell, Bobby Flay is the only chef left on the channel.  And he’s not all that impressive to me.  I swear the guy puts honey in everything.  If only I got the Bravo channel so I could watch Top Chef.  That show actually features quality chefs, doing some good work.  At least I have Bourdain…

 Another fine example of me not living on less…dinner at Jean Georges.   I will have to make sacrifices in other areas.
