I barely feel like I am sacrificing. Sure, it was warm last night, but that encouraged me to drink more water. Boredom does have a way of sneaking up on me. I've eased some of it thanks to the local libraries and watching streaming movies on Netflix. I've also been exercising in the morning more regularly with all this extra time I now have. Really the only place I am splurging is in the travel department, and even there I'm pinching pennies.
You might be asking why I am living like this. Well, I want to pay off all my debt, especially the mortgages on the rental properties. If I can get rid of all my debt I will be able to live a very comfortable life on the rental income. If the electric bill is $40 instead of $100, that's $60 I can use to pay off my debt.
