My husband and I are looking for ways to save to buy a house. We know we have to cut down on our monthly expenses, but we can’t agree on what we are going to cut. He wants to cancel our Direct tv, but I say no way. There are so many ways we can cut expenses without giving up our sole form of in home entertainment.
I told him that I would start clipping coupons, stop buying clothes and shoes, and dye my hair back to its natural color if he agreed not to cut off the Directv. If I do those three things we will probably save at least $300 per month. I know that’s not going to buy us a house, but it’s a start.
I can’t believe he is still insisting that we get rid of the satellite TV. Of course he doesn’t want to cut out his poker nights, and his electronics budget, so I’m thinking this is going to be a real grudge match between us. I don’t know how we are ever going to come to a consensus.
