A Man And His Dog

A man and his dog sat down at the kitchen table and thought about their financial situation. He had a good budget but he spent too much during the week. He wondered where did the money go and went through the receipts. The he remembered that he had spent money on the internet at night so he checked his account at that moment. It was difficult but he needed to be real with himself and make out a more detailed plan. That should do it. He got a cup of coffee with a pen and paper to make a daily plan. His notes looked as such:

Monday: breakfast, hot oatmeal, lunch apple and peanut butter and jelly sandwich, pizza for dinner. And a Bible study in the evening. He could buy extra pizza and freeze it for the rest of the week, or have it with friends.

Tuesday: cold cereal, banana and pbj, spaghetti. Class started that day.

Wednesday: grits and an orange, pbj and an apple, chicken salad and a potato.

Thursday: breakfast chicken quesadilla, apple and a club sandwich, and steak. Volunteer at night.

Friday: banana and cold cereal, go out to lunch with coworkers, and invite them to the weekly BBQ and potluck in the evening.

Saturday: leftovers for breakfast and lunch and go out to dinner at night.

Sunday: bacon, eggs, hash browns, and tortillas, go to church, get gas, go grocery shopping with friends with coupons and have a saving party at night.

At the end, he reviewed the plan and it looked good. He made a budget for the whole week and stuck to it. He didn’t buy anything else the whole week to stick to his budget. And he saved a lot of money. The next Sunday, he would make a new plan and budget. For that week he even made plans with his friends and had a weekly meeting. His dog looked up at him and reminded him not to forget the dog food.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I think what you said made a lot of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good., but what if you
    added something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean A Man And His Dog | raincollected is a little vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they
    create news titles to get viewers interested. You might try
    adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb
    usability and appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during
    my search for something concerning this.
