$7 a pack!!!

March 6th, 2009 at 09:01 am

Just got a text from DH, and overnight, cigarettes have gone up to $7 a pack! OMG!!! I don't know if the price increase is just at the little convenience store near our house, or statewide. He smokes, I don't. Obviously, I'm thinking (along with all of you) that this is the perfect time to quit. Let's just hope he sees it the same way! Doing the math, that's $2555 a year! Shopping at Aldi's, I typically spend $40/week, or $2080 a year. $500 a year more on cigarettes than FOOD?!!!! All I do know is that his weekly allowance is not going up. We just don't have that kind of money. I really hope he quits, but I can't force him, he has to come to that decision on his own. He's given up quite a few nastier vices, so I hope he's ready to give this last one up.

    Yikes! How expensive. Glad I gave it up years ago! Maybe he will at least cut down? That would help too! Besides, remind him that babies don't like daddies that stink like cigarettes! Smile

    oh, yeah... no smoking around babies anyway...so cutting down now will be good... $7??? O-U-C-H!
