1st official “Man Night”

So, last night was the first official Man Night at the Gordon household. I have to say it went very well. I accomplished both dinner and cleaning all while handling Nathan’s needs. It was easy and I hope all future evenings are as simple!

I switch schedules at work next week, so I’ll be working 7 am to 4 pm. Which, for the record, is sweeeeeeeeeet. Getting out earlier will allow Nikki to go to work earlier so we may even see the slightest amount of more money coming in! It’s only potentially 5 hours a week which won’t amount to much but we’re pinching pennies so every bit helps.

Speaking of pinching pennies, do any of you have tips or tricks that you use to be frugal? We’ve cut out the cable, but replaced the $50+/month cable with Netflix ($9/month) + Hulu Plus ($8/month). We also don’t have a home phone. Our cell phone plans wind up being about $70/month each for unlimited texting and data with enough minutes which is high, but not something we are giving up.

Any thoughts?
