I'll be shopping for cheaper car insurance in May that's for sure. The huge number is the premium for 6 months. 30%(7% of which went to our retirement fund) of our gross income is taken out before we get it. I think we should look into having less taken out. We spent just 53% of our gross on bills and expenses. Wow! Even I'm shocked by that! I wanna do a happy dance!:fdance:
