I’ve spoken with a few of my friends over the past few days, and I now realize the effects of the economy on 20-something married or soon-to-be married women. Instead of eating out whenever we’d like, we cook!
For a moment, let us set aside the fact that cooking at home is often more nutritious… Let us forget about all of the kitchen items that we load onto our wedding registries, but never really intend to use… Or the fact that some of our spouses may find some comfort in our inner desire to be domestic… Cooking, folks, saves money.
And when your 401k plummets and your bonuses come to a screeching halt – admit it or not, we look for ways to save money. Funny thing, we do not sacrifice things such as clothes, yarn, fabric, or the all important regular maintenance trips to the salon, but we will fore go eating out and the convenience of picking up dinner…
Instead we go home after 10 hour days, 2 hours of errands and make dinner. All in name of savings! Woo ~ ! The thought just made me tired.
