Looking at the Little Stuff

Coming up on Winter Solstice tomorrow.. I remember when we lived in Nome,,Alaska, we were so excited for Winter Solstice to come because it meant we would start having more than 4 hours of “sort of” daylight.  We gained or lost 7 minutes a day,, so the changes happened pretty quickly.

When deciding to make a major move probably the top subject might be $$,, how to save, where to cut back, what it will cost,,, etc, etc,.. I started with the fax line that we rarely use, yet we have had it on a dedicated phone line for 20 or so years… Yesterday our phone guy came out to make the adjustment.  Not long ago,, we would not be able to get by with a business with only one line, but with cell phones and DSL it makes life simpler if you look at what is changed and how it can affect you in a positive way.  I got in touch with our QuilTak customers and let them know they would need to email in orders,, mostly they do anyway.  We will save $30 per month x’s that by 36 = a little over a thousand $$ that can go into debt reduction or the “Move to Maui” fund.  I think if we pay attention to the smaller stuff, the stuff we have become complacent about over time,  and make the necessary adjustments,, we will be surprised at the simplicity it brings and of course the $$ saved.
Interesting quote for today…something to think about

Every bit of it is about economics. Every bit of it, without exception. Everything about religion is about economics. Everything about politics is about economics. And everything about economics is personal satisfaction. Everyone is personally motivated to do the best that they can possibly do for themselves.

  1. What? Move to Maui????? After just getting used to you being in where you are and wanting to say Hi next time we're there.

  2. It's going on 8 wonderful years here at the coast--still 3 years for you to come visit--you would love it here. And if you don't make then,, you can always visit when we get the the "island"..Options,, nice to have them.
