In 2013 I will absolutely spend as little money as possible. I will only spend money on needs instead of wants. This is a resolution that I have never had to make before. Thanks Obama! For the past 2 years I've done some spending restrictions but nothing like this. With the re-election of Pres Obama I really don't see the economy going well at all. Working in the medical field is also a bit of a worry because of the effects of Obama-Care. My bosses really don't know how much Obama-Care is going to affect them but they are anticipating being paid less. With so much uncertainty there really is no option but to prepare for the worst. The next 4 years is definitely the time to be the ant rather than the grasshopper.
