$9976.95

$9976.95

Seems like a lot of money, doesn't it?
That number was me & hellbob's taxable income in 1996. It is only $831.41 a month. That is more than twice what we had made the year before.

We may have more expenses now with house payments, and car payments, and things like car insurance, but we also have so many things that were unaffordable luxuries back then. We don't need to worry that we don't have the money to buy groceries for the week. Hell, we don't have to go to the foodshelves just so that we can eat. Let me tell you, that can be a humbling experience, having to admit that you can't even afford to eat.

I look back now and I have a hard time believing that we ever survived on so little, but it makes me appreciate what we do have so much more.
