Sooo....I had a post partially drafted for you. It was going to be all about our vegetable garden. Well, I didn't have it finished up last night and hit a technical glitch this morning. Why?
Because the Internet dropped while we had cable TV installed today! AT&T U-verse if we're getting specific. When I told my coworkers we were just getting cable, they looked at me like I was living in a third world country. Yes, John has been living without ESPN and I've survived without HGTV and the Food Network for quite some time now.
Sure, our utility bills are going to increase, but that's OK by me. We've been focusing on Ramit's "big wins" like negotiating a higher salary and refinancing our mortgage which more than offsets the cable bill.
Have you had a "big win" in personal finance recently?
PS - If you're looking to read something a little sweeter, I share my adventures in ordering ice cream in Paris over at One Sydney Road as part of Piper's Paris pop-up shop.
