December Goals

November 30th, 2006 at 08:32 pm

In order to save faster for a down payment on a house/condo, I am moving in with a friend who has a room available that is $250 per month cheaper than my current living situation. My commute to work will be four times longer than it is now, but it's only one mile each way to begin with. The additional gas for the commute will be compensated for by the fact that I will be living around the corner from the kinds of stores I currently ride several miles to.

Also, since I will be one minute away from the supermarket and a produce market, I will be cooking more at home, so I will be eating more healthy. I will be living right near the neighborhood where I hang out with my friends, and so I will enjoy more leisure time with them, which is also a health boost.

I'm also looking into getting certified to drive the ramp van taxis which can be used to give rides to wheelchair users in addition to everyone else. Not only would my income increase (clientele sent in my direction,) but my per-shift expenses would decrease (less to rent the cab and less gas for a V6 instead of a V8.)
