Due in part to the fact that someone has cast Greater Recession on the economy, and also because debt is my wife’s favored enemy, my lovely wife Efreak and I are attempting to watch our finances. Accordingly, she concocted for us a budget, and we discussed ways we can pay off the remainder of our debts. After some furious financial critical strikes, I am pleased to say that the only things we have left to pay off are our house, and half of my student loan. I’ve been paying on the damned thing for 9 years, let nobody tell you state schools are cheap!!!! (Of course, changing one’s major twice will do that to you….)

One thing I was rather surprised about was how I was unintentionally saving money.

It was not unusual for me to crack $100-150 a month on entertainment. Last month’s numbers revealed something surprising: I’d only spent $15 total – solely on my WoW subscription.

I’d had friends tell me before I started playing that this might happen, but I didn’t believe it. But it just goes to show: if you’re grinding, you’re not spending money!

Now I just have to make sure I remember to leave the house now and then…..
