First, I am so sorry by the lack of posts, but bear with me.. I will come back more... right now just dealing with stuff and I have had a monster headache/migraine/whatever for like 4 straight days now. So bad poor J is getting up during the night to put a purse over the alarm clock because HOLY CRAP COULD THAT LIKE BE ANY BRIGHTER!!! PHOENIX, QUIT LICKING YOUR FEET, THE NOISE IS KILLING ME! I would blog when the kiddos sleep, but I have been napping too.
Back to the reason for today... saving money!
Ok, so J has been working hard at quitting smoking... and guess what people, he is doing great... he hasn't had a cigarette in days. So proud. Now, he wasn't a big smoker, but he was one.. about 1/2 a pack a day.. about 10 cigarettes a day for those who don't know.
Now he smoked Marlboro Lights. We were buying them at $34.55 a carton.
Here's the breakdown, 10 packs per carton, 20 cigarettes in a pack... $0.17 per cigarette.
Therefore, not smoking, J will save us $620.50 per year. Let's check that, $0.17 per cigarette, 10 cigarettes per day, 365 days per year.
(0.17)*(10)*(365) = $620.50 per year.
Running total: $160.20 for milk, $219.00 for yogurt, $121.68 for bread, $738.40 for diapers, $408.80 for lunchmeat, $620.50 for J cigs = $2,268.58
So so very proud of you J. Keep up the good work babe... tons of people rooting for you.
