Budgets and Waists

I did a quick little download of the family’s expenses for 2008.


The #1 expense, far and away? Food.

And my kids are so skinny, too! What’s up with that?

Mortgage and taxes are neck-and-neck for #2. Taxes are the actual #2, but I don’t break out sales, real estate, auto licensing and insurance taxes, employer payroll taxes, gas taxes, utility taxes–actually, taxes would easily surpass food if I bothered to count them all.

But that’d be too depressing.
