I once considered myself well off, nothing fancy but my husband can afford our mortgage and I could afford to have a family as long as I sacrificed personal wants. When my husband and I purchased our home five years ago, heating oil was about a $1.15 I think.
In November we’ve decided to move the furniture out of the family room and replace it with bedding for us and what will be four children, and basically seal the upstairs so we don’t have to heat it. I’m not asking for government assistance or anything, but we need to get rid off our dependency of foreign oil really really soon.
Please be considerate of the less fortunate this winter and donate to local aid.
