The two of us don’t have a lot of money, but I try to find ways to keep my spouse ecstatic plus to lessen the stress from being on the edge of the poverty level.
One way is by cooking delicious meals at house with inexpensive ingredients found at a superstore or warehouse store.
My mom taught myself and others that being terrible doesn’t mean that you can’t eat nice food! A lot of lavish take-out food from restaurants is just reheated frozen food anyway, so you’re better off making it from scratch at house or getting the same frozen foods plus filling your freezer with them. For instance, I can get a box of brownie mix for a dollar plus a quarter, plus this will supply myself and others at least 12 servings in one single box. Compared to pre-packaged popcorn on the shelf, that’s a steal! My spouse is ecstatic as long as I keep cooking delicious food with whatever money all of us have available for the grocery store. Unluckyly, all of us have been in a desperate need for a new air conditioner over the past year plus a half. These Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C systems are upwards to $4k plus more, so I had to secretly save my entertainment budget money on every paycheck to amass enough on the side to purchase a new air conditioner. Although it wasn’t intended as her present, I still wanted to surprise my spouse with the brand new air conditioner right before her birthday to supply her an added surprise. She was so ecstatic with the new air conditioner that she was reduced to tears.
