The President ordered the cabinet to cut a whopping $100 million from the $2.5 trillion federal budget!
I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend approximately $2000 a month on groceries , medicine, bills, etc. So it's time to get out the budget cutting ax, go line by line through my expenses and start cutting.
I'm going to cut my spending by exactly the same ratio - 1/35,000 of my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2000 a month, I'm going to have to cut that number by seven cents!
Yes, I'm going to have to get by with $1999.93, but that's what sacrifice is all about. I'll just have to do without some luxuries.
