I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to rethink my spending. I was looking at my magazines and found that they were repeating certain types of articles every two or three issues. And I’ve also noticed that my books say the same thing. Seeing as these certain magazines are $8.99 each, I spend $70 one month So, I’m not spending on magazines anymore, I’m saving for gear. Also, I’m a packrat. I have 5 sterlite containers full of food that’s a lot of space and weight, so I’m downsizing. Oh, I forgot to mention three boxes of books. Ugh!
